Learn to Design and Build Intelligent Machines #HackYourWorld #BuildTheFuture

Designed for students entering grades 6-9 

Learn to weave professional engineering and development tools together and to build complex IoT machines!
Every tool in this class is taken directly from professional engineering environments. This class will guide students from using tools designed expressly for education to more complex tools used by engineers in industry. Successful students will learn to see the world of machines as accessible, modifiable and hackable. This camp provides a breadth of experiences from iterative design to machine control theory and practice.

Projects include: Building your own touchscreen Linux tablet computer, getting that tablet computer to physically control another environment remotely over the internet, designing and building complex autonomous machines and iterative prototyping with variety of power tools, 3D printing and CNC machines. This is a crash course in integrated engineering. Students will learn to use the following list of tools in conjunction with each other:

Coding

Java
Processing
G-Code
Python

Hardware

Raspberry Pi
Arduino
Discrete Components
PWM Motor Control

Tools

Power Saws
CNC Cutter
