Nearly every three hours, someone is struck by a train in the U.S. During this presentation, students will learn the skills they need to safely walk, bike, skate or ride near the railroad tracks. Students will also learn where it’s safe to play, where it’s not, and what they need to do when they get to a crossing.17
Class B: WIRED: Using Tools to Make Keychains.
Students use tools that electricians and plumbers use every day to make cool keychains.17
Class C:
Power Plant Puzzle.
Can your two-person team build the puzzle with nuts, bolts, linkage and steel? Bring your mechanical skills and teammate to the challenge. This class is limited to a capacity of 30 students per session, per presenter request.17
Class D:
Experiments With Electricity!
In this class, you will hook up various electrical devices and make them work. 17
Class E:
Lightning Lab: Programming The Sphero SPRK.
Lightning Lab is the Sphero App for programming Sphero robots. Beginners can give robots commands by drawing a path in the app for their robot to follow. Intermediate coders can utilize the familiar block-based drag and drop interface, while pros can use new text programming and write their own code. Sphero uses a combination of math, science, and programming to “teach” the robot to do different tasks. Students will get an introduction to programming the robots by using the Lightning Lab App. 17
Class F:
Unmanned Aircraft Systems Education and Applications.
PowerPoint presentation on Northland’s Aerospace Programs: Including Airframe and Power Plant Maintenance, UAS Maintenance, Imagery/Geospatial Analysis.
