Robots in the garden 

An unusual pairing of robotics and horticulture. Students will make Plantborgs. 

If plants could talk they would tell us when they are thirsty or they need more sun. 

Our Plantborgs will solve this problem and act as a plant translator.  

Students will create a robot monitors temperature, light, and moisture, and is programmed to seek out optimum living conditions of the plants


1:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.

Have you ever considered how a bat can see without any light?

Biomimicry is the study and emulation of nature to perform tasks or solve problems. 

A submarine and bat share the same capabilities in using sonar or echolocation to detect objects in their sensory ranges.

In this super fun class students create smart autonomous robots that avoid obstacles , go hunting for objects and more
