This Academy will bring hands on engineering, science, and technology to you. Building skills and completing challenges, you will learn the fundamentals of programming, 3D Design, circuitry, material properties, and the engineering design process. You will learn to create designs in TInkerCad while considering the capabilities of the 3D printer used to bring them into the physical world, and get a look at professional and college level 3D Design tools like Fusion 360 and A-Frame. Working with a breakout board called micro:bit, you’ll program using drag-and-drop programming that runs using Java. Enjoy the autonomy to freely design, build, test, and interact with your bridges, hydraulics, circuits, and all your own creations. In addition to gaining the skills to make a culminating project, you will peek under the hood and see the process of engineering and making for yourself.
