    Design, build, and manipulate objects in 3D dimensions in a virtual environment. Young students explore 3D versus 2D concepts and apply them to known skills first, then progress to using 3D design software to build and manipulate objects in a virtual environment. Proof your design with augmented reality apps to view your object prior to printing. Students complete virtual to physical by printing their 3D design on a 3D printer, also learning about the inner workings of 3D printers, materials, and common applications in the real world.

    Older students begin with 3D design in software generated virtual representations, learning about best engineering practices when planning for 3D printer projects. Students will learn how to use the 3D printer, how to troubleshoot basic 3D printer problems, design adjustments, rafting, additive versus subtractive methods, and real-world needs and applications.

    AR/VR – Augmented Reality and Virtual Reality

    Students explore the difference between Augmented versus Virtual Reality, using different apps and software to learn other content knowledge via a new method of information delivery. Students will work with tablets and Merge Cubes to see augmented reality come to life. Additional programs will demonstrate current commercial use of augmented reality in marketing materials, training and more. Students will learn about the difference of Virtual Reality using educational grade Merge headsets and explore commercial versions and uses of VR equipment.

    Students learn how to create their own Augmented Reality content, tie it to “triggers” and launch their own presentations with phones or tablets, to take their audience on a virtual museum walk of their own learning.

    Coding for remote site Robots

    NASA has to code remotely for their deep space robot explorers.  This class will be a simulation of what NASA has done and is doing.  Students will build their programs at home.  They will upload their program to a remote located robot that must execute their program correctly to meet assigned objectives.  Students will have the time to do troubleshooting of their program in real time.  There will be several robots that students will utilize remotely.  This is a general introduction to what real world software programmers do.
