Tech & STEM projects for kids
These are some of the recent projects I have done with young kids and teens. These projects were done in K-12 class environments or in clubs at local schools. Feel free to contact me if you are interested in doing any of these projects in your school.
I ran a summer Learn To Mod club that taught students how to code by programming Minecraft mods. We ran these clubs out of our office and taught over 60 kids how to code that summer. Read about it here.
This year I have worked with the CCNTH DireLights student run business mentoring the students on how to grow their sales with digital advertising. This included showing them how to do keyword research, competitive research and how to leverage 3rd party marketplaces to generate more sales.
This year I ran a robotics club at Trivium Charter School for 5th to 8th graders. Students learned how to build sensor controlled robots and BattleBots using the Adruino and other parts. Read more about the battle bots from here.
This was a project done in a K-1 class to introduce students to circuits. I taught the kids how to build mini bug bots using toothbrush heads, vibrating motors, cell coin battery and other parts. Read about the bug bot from here
This is a project done in a K-1 class as a fun way to learn about magnetism. The kids learned how to built tins bots using magnets and different parts that can stick to magnets. They also learned how to add a motor & battery to it in order to get it to move. Read more about the tin robot from here.
This was a project done in a K-1 class as a fun way to learn about simple machines (wheels & axle). The students learned how to build a fully functional bubble blowing machine. Read more about the bubble blowing machine from here.
This was a project done in s K-1 class as a fun way to learn about electronics. The students learned how to build circuits connecting lights, buzzers, motors and switches. Read more about the play dough circuits from here.
This was a club I ran at at Trivium Charter School for 6th to 8th graders. The students learned how to build a fully functional retro arcade system out of a shoe box using the Raspberry Pi and other parts. Read more about the retro arcade from here.
This was a project done at in a K-1 class as a fun way to learn about circuits & electronics. The students learned how to build a parallel circuit using a battery, conductive copper tape and LEDs. Read about the Christmas Tree Circuit Ornaments.
