Cougar Cub Inventor's Workshop! #resvt

Richmond Elementary School , in conjunction with
the Society of Women Engineers, ECHO Science Museum, Radiate Art Space, CardBoardTek and  MMUSD Educators is proud to present the fourth annual:

Thursday November 15th, 2018
5:30 – 7:30pm*
RES Gym and Library
Cost: 2$ per project (to cover cost of disposable resources, scholarships available)

What is an Inventor’s Workshop?
This workshop is a family-friendly event to MAKE, create, learn, invent, craft, recycle, think, play and be inspired by celebrating arts, crafts, engineering, science and technology.  Students will work with their families to create! Activities will be facilitated by engineers and teachers, but tasks will be open ended and creative. Families will have an opportunity to learn together as they experience the fun of making / building / constructing / designing and more! A variety of activities will be available to challenge students from Grades preK – 8.
*RES PTO will be hosting a bake sale so bring some $$ to buy a treat (or 2!)

Activities planned for our workshop include:

PinBox3000!  Check out some awesome Cardboard pinball machines and learn about how we will create these games in fourth grade at RES this year.  
Lego Race Cars!  Join ECHO to design and then race an awesome Lego car that you build!(on a large indoor track)
Marble Maze Challenge:  Create a marble maze from ceiling to floor--the possibilities are endless!
Making a keyboard with bananas!  MaKey MaKey Boards are electronic devices that convert many regular objects into keys on your computer to control programs like Scratch or videos games.  Objects that are conductive, even slightly, like fruit or people, can be used with the MaKey.
Build and Launch a Rocket!  Using makerspaces materials we will build rockets that reach for the stars as they travel several stories into the night sky.
Creating interactive circuits with littleBits!  littleBits are electronic modules that snap together with magnets to make circuits.  Each bit has a specific function (light, sound, sensors, buttons, motors, etc), and modules snap together to make larger circuits.
Checking out a 3D printer in action!  CHMS and RES students have been using a 3D printer during technology/enrichment classes. Come and watch a 3D printer in action and explore the Tinkercad software we use to make our designs.
Make it Fly!: Create objects to fly in the wind tunnel
Creating abstract art with a digital microscope!  DinoXcope Art is artwork created using a digital microscope to photograph intentional arrangements of materials.  
Programming interactive games with Scratch!  Scratch is a visual programming language.  Use colorful interlocking building blocks of code like legos to build interactive games and programs.
Green Screen! Green screen technology is used to create background scenes for pictures in films and photographs.  Come and create your own background.
JitterBots!  Back due to popularity, you can create your very own jittery robot!

      SNAP Circuits, Art Creation with Radiate Art Space, ECHO Engineering Challenges, Keva Planks, Robots…and more!!!!
