Hack the House: A Smart Home Challenge!
August 22 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm$12 – $30
Architecture and engineering collide in this special Internet of Things workshop designed for middle school students. Over 2 hours, students work together in teams to design, test, and code a miniature Smart Home for a variety of clients, each with their own set of needs and desires. Using predictive sensors, circuits, and a bit of block-based coding, learn what it takes to completely automate a home to predict and answer your every need. Space is limited to 16 participants. Students could benefit from a basic understanding of algebra.
Ages 12+; $30|$12 for Members
