Intro to Mobile App Development: This class is no longer available for registration - During this workshop you will get a glimpse into the life of a software engineer by building a small mobile application that will run on any Android phone. Learn to create a nice splash screen and implement a fun program - you'll find this is surprisingly easy and something anyone can do in a few hours! Attendees will be asked to bring their own laptops. 

RedBot Arduino Robotics: In this Robotics course, we will discover the limitless possibilities of robots using the Arduino programming language. You will be introduced to two-motor robotics, sensor integration and building circuits to your RedBot. Computers will be provided.

Craft Tech: Where Creativity Meets Technology [GREAT FOR BEGINNERS]: Hack, fabricate, code, tinker and create craft-tech projects together. Emphasis will be on skill-building, creative collaboration and exploration. This class introduces technology in a fun and approachable way, even if you don't think tech is for you. Computers will be provided.

Electronics 101: This workshop has been combined with Robotics. If interested, please register for Robotics.

Coding 101: Only 6 spots left This coding course is an introduction to computer programming and coding using the Karel programming language developed at Stanford. This class teaches what it truly means to<code>, allowing you to develop your own problem-solving skills using a hands-on approach in fun and interactive ways.
