About the event

Afterschool 6-week program

Dates: November 15, 22, 29, December 6, 13, 20

Time: 5:00 - 6:30 PM

Age: 8 - 14

Throughout this series, students will be working on two technical projects: an Arduino car and a can crusher experiment. Join us as we learn tons of skills to build an autonomous car and also have some destructive fun crushing Coke and Pepsi cans! Come be a tech wizard at the Rockville Science Center!

The Tech Wizards program has two modules: 

1) Arduino Projects (Electronic Circuits & Autonomous Car)

Learn C++ language to program an Arduino to control LEDs, ultrasound sensor, servo motors, DC motors. Learn electrical circuits and how to use a soldering iron. Then, put all that knowledge together to build an “Autonomous Car” that can avoid obstacles and drive through a maze. At the end of the program, you can take the car home. 

2) Creative Destruction & the Scientific Method

Crush Coke and Pepsi cans to find out which one is stronger. You will learn the scientific method by forming a hypothesis, gathering data, and running a statistical analysis to prove or disprove your hypothesis.
