I’m a Tech Ninja!

Class # 19   Grades: 2- 3

Class Overview

This summer you will become a tech ninja and have an App-Mazing time in this tech-novation class! After earning your Tech Ninja iPad License, we will learn how to use various tech tools to produce APP smashing movies that will be published on YouTube, code and create “OzoLands” with Ozobots, and explore creating circuits with Makey Makeys and Little Bits. We will take a field trip to The Works Museum and make our own “Wigglebots” to keep, have an on-site field trip with Mad Science to learn about “Radical Robots” and make a “Mechano-Hand” to take home, and we will also have a 3M Visiting Wizard teach us more about circuits and electricity! Be ready to problem solve, collaborate, and think creatively with the other tech ninjas in this class! (Oh…also be ready to have a lot of FUN!)
