WE CAN MAKE THEIR DAY
For standard field trips, choose one of the following activities:
CIRCUITRY: Paper Circuits (maker takeaway)/ Squishy Circuits (maker takeaway)/ Breadboard Basics
Participants will explore circuitry basics to light up led lights, sound buzzers, alarms, and fans
ROBOTICS: Basic Bot Games
Participants will learn about the basic components of robots, build a basic bot, then test them on the robot crash course and climb. Options for students to be divided into groups or work individually.
CODING: Sphero Maze
Participants can work individually or in teams to use block-based or Java coding to operate a Sphero Bolt robot through an obstacle course.
3D PEN ART
Participants will select from available templates or may bring in their own drawing (no larger than 6x6) to create with a 3D pen. (maker takeaway)
Architecture (Eiffel tower, buildings, bridges, etc.)
Science (molecules, atoms, etc.)
Art exploration (animals, flowers, etc.)
Transportation (motorcycle, car engine, bicycle, etc.)
Just for Fun (Fidget spinners, bubble wands, badges, etc.)
3D PRINTING: Spinning Keyring (maker takeaway)
Participants will learn to add custom elements to a 3D model and have the final design printed out. If participant 3D prints are not completed during your field trip time, we will deliver them to your school the next business day.
Looking to extend specific content instruction through hands-on activities?
We can ignite your students’ interest in STEAM by helping you develop custom project-based maker activities during your field trip that supports academic and skill standards. For example, create a 3D printing and assistive technology design challenge for students, where they work in teams to design a product that improves the day-to-day life of someone who struggles with mobility in their hands. Contact us to discuss custom field trip options.
Field trip costs for custom options range from $15-$25 per student (to be determined based on the number and length of activities, materials, consumables, etc.)
COVID-19 information: The health and safety of our staff and visitors is of the utmost importance to us. All materials, supplies, workstations, and equipment are sanitized before and after your group's visit. Each participant will receive their own sanitized set of materials, supplies, and equipment to work with. Masks are required but may be removed when we are able to maintain social distance during activities.
DID SOMEONE SAY FIELD TRIP?
Tired of the same field trip options year after year? Want to maximize your field trip budget with high impact learning?
Let's MAKE your students' day with an out-of-the-ordinary and fun learning experience! Students will tour our studio, learn about the maker movement and the technologies changing our world, participate in a fun game of wits, then get hands-on with their own maker activity (3D Pen Art, Circuitry, Robotics, Coding, 3D Printing).
Standard Field Trip Cost: $15 per student participant
$0 per non-participating teacher/chaperone
$15 teacher/chaperone participant
There is no fee for non-participating teachers/chaperones. If a teacher/chaperone wishes to participate (make their own maker creation) during the field trip, the fee is $15/per participant.
Field trips require a minimum of 15 participants and a max of 40 participants
We're looking forward to MAKING a great field trip experience with your group!
