Get Creative! Get Connected! Get Coding!

In this session, you will get to design and make all sorts of creative projects using a micro:bit. You’ll create games that you can play with friends and you’ll even get to make an intelligent virtual pet (Tamogotchi). The fun won’t stop here – you’ll get to keep your micro:bit so that you can continue building projects on your own.

Cosmic Claw

In this activity, youth will use the Engineering Design Process to design, build, and operate a robotic claw. Working together, the group will create a model of a hydraulic-powered robotic arm and claw and test it by completing an agricultural task. Ultimately, the mechanical claw should be able to perform a simple grasping, scooping, or raking action to cultivate crops on another world.
