Youth will learn about the exciting world of radio communications and electronics while working with electronic circuit components and integrated circuit such as diodes, transistors, operational amplifiers and timer circuits. Participants will also gain fundamental circuitary skills such as soldering, resistance and capacitance identification, and element connection as they build technology devices such as AM and FM Radios, Lie detectors and Morsecode trasmitters.
Youth will explore the state-of-the-art field of autonomous robotics as they work in teams to build, program and redesign autonomous robots. They will be introduced to electrical circuit theory, electrical component, programmable microcontroller interfacing, servo motors, photoresistors, infrared sensors and transmitters. This class also features several motivating robot programming competitions which will keep students alert, team-spirited and professional.
Youth will build underwater robots made up of everyday materials such as PVC pipes and canister tubes. The kits for these robots were developed by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and are known as “Sea Perches”. This project will expose youth significantly to several engineering possibilities and their application in their immediate environment. The impact of this activity enhances the progress of the community since these devices are similar to the ones used by BP to help plug the oil leak off the Louisiana coast that occurred in 2010.
