ARTBotics… a fusion in coding, crafting, and invention, using the Hummingbird Bit Robotics Kit!
Create and code a robot that moves, lights up, makes you laugh, and challenges you to be inventive. Each camper will design and decorate a 3 D piece of art using recycled materials, then wire a controller with LEDs, motors, and sensors. Our daily challenge is to make the bot come ALIVE! Our projects will include art skills, inventing, crafting, and basic block programming using MakeCode.
* This camp is intended for coding beginners. More experienced coders are welcome to join the group, but some lessons may be below their skill level.
Each camper needs to have daily access to both a Zoom video learning setup and a Bluetooth-enabled device compatible with the Hummingbird coding app. The app works with:
– Windows XP / Windows 10
– Mac iOS 10.6.8 and newer
– iPad 3 and newer
– some Android devices
– some Kindle devices
To check if your device is compatible, click here: https://www.birdbraintechnologies.com/portal/hummingbirdbit/program/
(Chose “MakeCode” for the programming language.)
$300 for MCMA Members / $340 for Non-Members
**This includes a Hummingbird Bit programmable robotics kit for the camper to keep!
