Brinn Labs will be hosting a Summer Sessions series for Students age 13 and up during the months of July and August.
The sessions will consist of hands-on learning experiences that emphasize practical maker skills and STEAM education, summer session themes include stop-motion animation, 3D design and printing, rough and finish carpentry, learn to solder and more. All half-day sessions are $45; five sessions for $200. (Register using links to Eventbrite below.)
Wednesday sessions are devoted to specific maker skills, with demonstrations, instruction and projects, so you can practice what you have learned – that’s where the wildcard comes in!
Wildcard Wednesdays will take place from 1 pm to 4 pm. A tentative schedule is listed below.
July 11 – Fabrication Tools and Shop Safety
Learn how to use a variety of fabrication tools found in a typical workshop, and how to be safe when working in a shop.
July 18 – Rough Carpentry/Framing
Have you ever wondered how a house or garage is built? It all starts with framing! Join us to learn the basics of building out a frame.
July 25 – Soldering and Circuit Boards
How do electronics work? We’ll explore some simple circuits and learn to solder wires and components together, as well as cover how circuit boards work and how to make your own.
August 1 – Stop Motion Animation
Learn about different animation techniques and then create your own digital stop-motion animations using our equipment.
August 8 – 3D Modeling
BlockSCAD is an easy-to-use interface for OpenSCAD, a 3D modeling program that allows you to create solid models suitable for 3D printing.
August 15 – Introduction to Arduino
The Arduino microcontroller can be used to create fun electronics projects, or prototype potential products. We’ll learn the basics of wiring and coding an Arduino and get things blinking in no time!
August 22 – Design Prototyping
Where do you start when you want to bring your ideas to life? With prototyping! We’ll introduce the skills needed to design a prototype.
