Bring your imagination and unleash your inner mad-scientist! Musical instruments, multicolored light up wearables, automated gardens, phone controlled devices, drawing machines, re-purposed automated toys, robots of all shapes and sizes, these are just some of the possibilities! Students are welcome to create their own invention or choose from a list of projects, then build their own invention using computers, an Arduino, sensors, various output devices, CNC machine and 3D printer. Students will learn simple computer coding and basic mechanical design and must create their project within budget constraints. Completed inventions will be displayed at the Fond du Lac Public Library where patrons may vote for their favorites. After the display, students may keep their invention!
