Tweens and teens are invited to hang out after school and participate in cool activities, have a snack and socialize. Activities will promote STEM learning and encourage kids’ self-esteem. Kendyl Litwiller will lead the activities.
In September youth will use Cubelets to learn tactile coding to form a variety of simple robots, use critical thinking to open a Breakout Box, and build a structure with Q-BA-MAZE.
Cubelets are a line of construction toys manufactured by Modular Robotics. The Cubelets are small color coded cubes that people magnetically stick together to form a variety of simple robots, a kind of modular robot. The cubes connect with magnets and a genderless connector.
Breakout EDU is the immersive learning games platform that promotes critical thinking to solve a series of challenging puzzles in order to open the locked box.
MindWare Q-BA-Maze is an awesome playset for teaching youth to embrace their creativity and design engineering marvels. It’s a unique system of colorful cubes that interlock to form an amazing marble maze. Q-Ba-Maze 2.0 lets kids create marble maze sculptures in almost any design — animals, buildings, geometric shapes, simply letting their creativity be their guide. Q-Ba-Maze is unpredictable because the steel balls can travel in any direction since each cube opens on two sides, creating a live demonstration of probability, physics and art all in one.
