STEM Inventor Camp
Day 1: Learn about the Engineering Design Process to simple electronic circuits using Littlebits Inventor kit
Day 2: Introduction to sensors. Build a navigator using sensors to move around in the dark
Day 3: Recycling is the theme of this day with the creation of a Trash Chomper
Day 4: Robo Arm and its potential application
Day 5: Mini challenges
Futurelink’s STEM Inventor Camp is carefully designed to inspire youth in the field of STEAM. This camp will allow young minds to observe, make predictions, and experiment their prediction with Littlebits snap circuits pieces to test their hypothesis. Using the Littlebits kits, young minds will be able to create prototypes with real-world connections and understand the topics related to STEAM and make inferences. With help of inquiry-based learning methodology, students can test out the STEAM concepts and understand cross-connection between the subjects. Moreover, students will learn how circuits and electronics can be used to improve people’s everyday lives.
