TEEN INNOVATOR WINTER TECH CAMPS 2018

The Teen Innovator Programs are designed with the teen in mind. The Teen Inventor Program infuses leadership and good core values together with advanced technology, coding, robotics, artificial intelligence and creating.  The programs enable teens to learn more about themselves and discover their talents while learning about advanced technologies. This series was created to emphasize innovation and its importance in the education of today. Teens will learn the value of resilience, other good values and how to problem solve, which will bring out the leader in them as they prepare for their future careers.

Course Description: Robot Arm Project (Arduino System)

Prerequisite: No prior experience in robotics required. Student should come with a positive attitude to learning new technology.  BYOD – Windows laptop or MacBook.

A 5 day course, the Robotic Arm Project is for students in high school with an interest in robotics and automation systems. Students are provided step-by-step guidelines on building a mini desktop robot arm. Students may do the course even if they have no prior robotic skills, though if they do, it would be a plus. Students will indulge in the world of mechanical assembly, electric circuit design, fundamental programming and creativity with a whole heap of fun.

Students are expected to Bring Your Own Laptop (BYOD). Materials for construction and other learning resources are fully provided for use in the classroom. Students are encouraged to bring a device to photograph and film their project.

Course Description: 3D Design and Printing – Additive and Subtractive Manufacturing (New Design Module!)

Prerequisite: No prior experience required. Student should come with a positive attitude to learning and problem solving.  BYOD – Windows laptop or MacBook.

Grades 7 to 12 | Date: 9 and 10 July 2018, Monday and Tuesday| Time: 9.00am – 3.00pm (2 Day program) | Forest Hill College, Burwood East, Vic |  Cost: $350 (includes material fee)

A two in one course for teens which focuses on Additive Manufacturing and Subtractive Manufacturing.

Additive Manufacturing

3D printing is part of our world and continues to fascinate people. Teens will learn the concepts behind 3D printing and understand how 3D printing works. Yes, from the time the design is created and when it goes to print using design software.

Teens will be able to learn about the design to print process during the session. They will understand how 3D printing continues to evolve from design to print and how 3D printing impacts technology and our world – the advantages and disadvantages of 3D printing, which gets them thinking. 

Subtractive Manufacturing

Teens will venture into Subtractive Manufacturing which involves design and manufacturing! Subtractive manufacturing is a process by which 3D objects are constructed by successively cutting material away from a solid block of material.

Subtractive manufacturing can be done by manually cutting the material but is most typically done with a CNC Machine.

One of the advantages of subtractive manufacturing is the variety of materials that can be used, from wood and metal to plastics and acrylics to plasma. (Finer applications such as laser engravers work with an even wider array of materials.) CNC is widely used in manufacturing, and can be found in most facilities.

In this course, teens will explore, understand and then move into creating and then printing their own designs using the CNC Machine. This is a course most suited for teens who love and want to explore engineering and manufacturing.

Teens will take home a 3D printed object which they have created and a carved masterpiece of their own.

Students are expected to Bring Your Own Laptop (BYOD).  Students are encouraged to bring a camera to film their project or a USB to save their projects.

  • Students will learn:

    • Introduction to Advanced Manufacturing
    • Introduction to 3D design and print (Additive and Subtractive Manufacturing)
    • How 3D printing and CNC Milling is used
    • Learn the process of 3D printing and CNC Milling and how they  evolve from design to print
    • How to design a 3D model / CNC model and bring it to print / carve
    • Advantages and disadvantages of Additive and Subtractive Manufacturing
  • Software & Hardware Skills Development

    • Learn to use Computer Aided Design (CAD) software

What students bring home

  • Certificate of Completion
  • Students in Robotics camps ONLY can take home video files of the week’s robot challenges, detailing how well their team’s robots accomplished goals such as moving/pushing objects or navigating obstacle courses. (Students will have to bring their own cameras)
  • Students in Coding camps can bring a USB to save their files
