Science Academy: Robotics & 3D Printing

Entering Grades 5-8
Located in our Borisenok Family Science Center at Albany Academy for Girls, this co-ed, all-day program will teach you the basics of design through the constuction and programming of VEX-style robots to complete a series of challenges. We will take advantage of 3D modeling to design custom robot parts and accessories. We will then print your designs on our large 3D printer. Expect to be challenged and to have fun as we explore these exciting fields! Parents will be invited to our Robotics Challenge the last Thursday of the session.
