3D printing and Minecraft both represent boundless opportunity for creating even our wildest of ideas! In 3D Printing: Minecraft Creations, students will explore the basic concepts of 3D printing and computer-aided design, or CAD, to bring their most awesome Minecraft creation to life! Students will take their Minecraft design out of the world of Minecraft and learn how to extrude it into a 3D model that can then be modified to be printed in 3D. This class meets at Stevenson High School, 1 Stevenson Dr, Lincolnshire, IL 60069. No discounts or vouchers.

Video games are everywhere and in almost every form you can imagine! In Electronic Game Design: Ninja Attack!, we will create our own version of a Platform game set in a dojo that we will defend from a ninja attack! We will use the Engineering Design Process to create a storyboard to outline the rules of play and characters for our game. Then, we will use Clickteam Fusion 2.5® to bring our storyboard to life with programming. At the end of the class, everyone takes home a working game. This class meets at Stevenson High School, 1 Stevenson Dr, Lincolnshire, IL 60069. No discounts or vouchers.

Robots come in a variety of shapes and sizes and are each designed to perform unique tasks. In this class, using the new LEGO WeDo 2.0 robotics kit, students will develop a basic understanding of how robots are designed and programmed to be used in the real world every single day. They will then create their very own designs and program their robots to move and perform jobs ranging from lifting simple objects to cleaning up large-scale natural disasters. This class meets at Stevenson High School, 1 Stevenson Dr, Lincolnshire, IL 60069. No discounts or vouchers.
