The Discovery Center invites Homeschooling families and groups to join us as we bring your homeschooling students’ Science Standards to life throughout the Discovery Center. Each month will have a unique theme.
One of the biggest challenges for Homeschooling families is how to effectively meet and teach Science Standards when the last time many adults performed a science experiment was when they were back in high school.
This month, our homeschoolers will get hands-on experience learning the basics of coding to better understand how robots work – then put your skills into action with robots, robotics, and coding all over the Discovery Center – with Ozobots, Sphero Bolts, RVRs and of course, our Mars Robotics Laboratory.
Activities and demonstrations include:
- 11am workshop: Create a ScribbleBot Participants (aka Robotics Engineers) will create their own bot to take home while learning the basics of robotics (how it works) for them to continue the learning/building after today’s session
- 1:30pm workshop: Code your way through the Solar System Just as NASA does – our Robotics Engineers will learn, then do by coding Sphere Bolts and RVRs around the inner and outer solar system to explore different worlds
- Special SOS Presentation (all day): Discover current and future space missions that involve robots to help us understand other worlds.
- Self-guided Activities: More Robots and Coding All of today’s activities revolve around learning robotics, coding, and how robots help us in our lives, including today’s self-guided activities.
- Mars Robotics Laboratory: Special Mission in our newly redesigned simulated Mars surface Robotics Engineers will be given a Mission to Complete at our new Mars Landing Site
Please note, some activities are first come, first served due to limited capacity. Activities subject to change.
