AADL and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Southeast Michigan Chapter are teaming up to bring some great events to the library this summer for Elementary Schoolers! Three different events will each happen twice at the Downtown Library:
MANUFACTURAMA gives kids a challenge to design, prototype, build and optimize a simple device to solve a common problem! Learn about design, process engineering, tooling, and other parts of the manufacturing business as you make enough of your doodad for each of your team to take home. Manufacturama happens from 2-5 PM on Sunday, July 13, and Sunday, August 10.
HELLO WORLD: Command Line for Kids gives an opportunity to get started with the command line: the "under the hood" part of computers and operating systems that;s a great start for budding young programmers. HELLO WORLD starts at 6 PM on Thursday, July 24, and Thursday, August 21.
Simple Circuits with Engineers! provides an excellent opportunity for beginners to learn some of the basics of electrical circuits by playing with low-voltage circuit kits with assistance from IEEE Engineers. Simple Circuits happens from 2- 5 PM on Sunday, July 27, and Sunday, August 17.
Bring your elementary-aged kids to these events, intended for grades 3-5, to get them started with Electronics, Programming, or Manufacturing! Are you interested in helping out with these events? Contact the IEEE co-ordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
