We teach children about circuitry (electrical engineering) and computer programming (computer science) through creative, hands-on projects.

Our programs use innovative, leading-edge equipment and software including Arduino (www.arduino.cc), Raspberry Pi (www.raspberrypi.org), Sphero (www.sphero.com), MIT App Inventor (appinventor.mit.edu) and Scratch (scratch.mit.edu) to give kids an opportunity to learn essential modern-world skills that aren’t typically taught in school. We bring our own trained staff to class sites, as well as all necessary materials for student workstations.

Course Descriptions:
Circuit Makers 101
Let’s get creative with electricity! In this junior hands-on electronics class, students will gain experience with creating their own electronics; designing custom light-up greeting cards, electric games, mazes, and even musical instruments. Each class day consists of a circuitry lesson and a hands-on electronics project, using components like lights, buzzers, switches, motors, and sensors. Circuit Lab staff will make sure participants create a project that they can be proud of each day. Most class days include a take-home project.
 
Hands-On Electronics
Tinker with electronics while learning the basics of computer programming. We begin by experimenting with the fundamentals of electronics and circuitry, and step up to projects where our class of young makers will design their own interactive and programmable devices. Participants use the latest tools including Arduino (for building interactive devices) and Raspberry Pi (for learning about computers and coding) to experiment with LEDs, resistors, motors, and programming. Each class day gives participants the chance to design a hands-on project with the guidance of skilled Circuit Lab instructors.
