Maker Art: Inventing a Time Machine at the Lycée

This year, we are creating a Time Machine in our Maker Art class at the Lycée Français, with a great team of of 9 students. In our after-school workshop, we combine arts and technology to bring their ideas to life, with lights, sounds and motion.

 

Each student will create their own scene from the past, present or future. They will then work in teams to build the Time Machine, which will showcase their work -- as well as program lights, motion and sound with Arduino boards.

 

This class is for students in grades 4 and 5 (ages 8 to 10). Besides learning how to make things with electronics, this course helps them develop their creativity, collaboration and problem-solving skills. We meet in Sausalito for an hour and a half each week, every Thursday at 3:30pm, from January 5 to March 30, 2017.

 

Our teacher associate this year is Edward Janne, a talented maker, designer and engineer from our Tam Makers community. We’re very lucky to have his technical expertise for this new adventure. :)

 

We look forward to another great Maker Art course this year. We have a really good group of students, who are exceptionally creative and engaged. I can’t wait to see what they come up with!
