BARN's Electronic & Technical Arts Studio is planning the launch of a BARN Robotics program. We'd kick it off with a Tech Talk followed by a series of classes for combat robotics (think of Discovery Channel's Battlebots scaled down to 150g or 1lb robots). If you're interested in participating in this "sport" please contact Keith La Plain, who's working to get this off the ground. You can find Keith hosting our Friday open studios, or you can reach him by email: klaplain@laplain.com. Limited space still available in these ETA Summer Youth Programs!

Creative Robotics - Critters (Ages 10-14)

Full STEAM ahead! In this class, students will be combining art and technology to make critters (real or imagined) out of common materials like cardboard, paint, and paper and bringing them to life through coding, motors, lights, and a variety of components.
Monday-Thursday, July 25-28, 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Creative Robotics Lip-Syncing Characters (Ages 10-14)
In this class, students will be combining art and technology to make characters that will move their mouths to lip-sync to music or words thanks to a sound sensor. The robots will be built out of common materials like cardboard, paint, and paper and brought to life through coding, motors, lights, and a variety of components.
Monday-Thursday, July 25-28, 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM
