1. STEM Summer Camps August 2022

With Cole Braden from Steampunk Robotics, weekdays in August from 12pm to 3pm, 6 children per class, ages 8 and up. All these camps are held at Almonte Branch, except Friday, August 12, at the Pakenham Branch.

During the LEGO EV3 Mindstorms camps, kids over 8 and young adults will love learning the basics of coding languages as they assemble, then program robots to find their way out of mazes, fight, play and race. If they choose to learn how to 3D print, they will use TinkerCAD to create their own 3D figures and learn how to print them.

Choose ONE LEGO EV3 Mindstorms workshop (options below) OR ONE 3D printing workshops at a beginner or intermediate level.

2. Virtual Reality – Game Development Workshop

With Gabe Braden from Steampunk Robotics, for ages 10 to 17, Saturdays in July & August, 10am to 1pm, Almonte Branch.

The goal of this workshop is to give a sense of what it’s like to create 3D objects and render them in Virtual Reality. Participants create a 3D avatar in TinkerCAD, the custom avatar is loaded into a pre-made VR game, and then participants play the game and view their avatar in VR. If possible, participants need to bring their own Android or Apple mobile phone, any participant that doesn’t have a phone will be able to load their game on a test device. Every participant will be provided with a Chromebook for use during the program and a Google Cardboard Headset.

Choose ONE of these dates
