    The Fresno Ideaworks LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3 Robot Education course will prepare elementary to middle school students and coaches for the 2019-2020 FIRST Robotics Lego League (FLL) season. The course focuses on engineering, technology, and computer science and integrates cross-curricular activities, such as science and math, encompassing all STEM curricula. Students will construct and program robots that  they can use in to solve realistic problems and perhaps compete in the First LEGO League challenge! Children gain the confidence to experiment, create and refine their designs. No prior knowledge or experience in programming or building robots.Students will be encouraged to conceptualize and collaborate on designs for the 2019-2020 FLL challenge: "City Shapers!"
    In line with Fresno Ideaworks core values, FIRST Robotics mentors aspire to model gracious professionalism and cooperation. It's a way of doing things that encourages high-quality work and emphasizes the value of others, with respect for individuals and the community.In August, we will assist with the formation of FLL and FRC teams. Potential FIRST Robotics mentors and coaches are encouraged to attend.

    This class meets twice per week on Tuesdays and Thursdays, from July 9th through August 12th, @ Fresno Ideaworks in the Circuit Circus (Tech) Room. All children must be accompanied by an adult during the class.

    There is no fee for this class, but a $25 donation to Fresno Ideaworks will help us continue to offer opportunities like this.

    This introductory class focuses on wheel throwing and basic glazing. It is perfect for a group of friends, family, couples or even by yourself (you will make friends in this class, I promise). In this class, you will be learning the basics of forming a ball of clay into a beautiful vase, cup, mug, bowl, or plate using an electric potter's wheel. If you’re feeling especially inspired to take on more… how about a bird feeder or planter!?! The possibilities are endless with pottery.

    Materials will be provided. Additionally, the items you create go home with you to share with your friends and family. All items made are food, dishwasher, and microwave safe.

    Class will be four sessions, and the cost includes a $10 materials fee.

    Note: Please trim your nails down. Longer nails make throwing on the wheel very difficult.

    See you all in class! Feel free to share with friends and families.

    Students should plan to attend all three classes.
      

    The first meeting will cover  basic safety and project selection.  The second and third sessions will be devoted to a project that will reinforce the skills learned on day 1.  We will be using many of the tools we practiced on, as well as some layout and marking skills, to build a small project that you will be able to take home and be proud of!

    Attendees do not need to be members of Ideaworks. However, upon completion of the class, members will be certified to use the covered woodshop tools unsupervised during business hours.

    So, come make some sawdust!
