Homeschool Maker Programs
The Craftsbury Public Library will offer a monthly homeschool class on Wednesday mornings. The fall session of classes will focus on STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) skills. Programs are designed for those aged 10 and up, or aged 6-10 with parental assistance. Classes are free but pre-registration is requested and limited to 15 participants.
September 23- Squishy Circuits Build playful and colorful sculptures using conductive play dough. Using LEDs and batteries you'll learn to build parallel and series circuits and then use these patterns to build unique sculptures that light up!
October 21- E-textiles Sew LEDS into fabric and build simple circuits sewing with conductive thread. You'll learn basic circuit design, explore the aesthetics of circuits, and be introduced to the possibilities of embedding computational and electronic elements into wearables, architecture, and home. You could even light up your Halloween costume.
November 18 Toy Hacking Starting with used electronic toys, toy hackers carefully examine then safely take the toys apart to learn how they work. Participants explore both the simplicity and complexity of these toys and their unique circuits and are shown how to identify inputs, outputs and power. We’ll experiment with circuit bending and reverse engineering while we reimagine and reinvent the toys with materials on hand.
December 16 E-origami Did you know you can build circuits with paper and conductive tape? Turn a paper fold into a switch? E-papercrafting is an accessible way to build circuits that add to paper projects of all kinds. Each participant can go home with a light up ornament.
