STEAM Program
by Boys & Girls Clubs of Lodi/Hackensack

WaterBotics is an innovative, underwater robotics curriculum that can be used in traditional classroom settings or in after-school and summer camp programs. Team of students work together to design, build, program, test and redesign underwater robots, made of LEGO® and other components. Students engage in a series of design challenges or "missions" that gradually increases in complexity and ultimately leads to a fully functional underwater robot capable of maneuvering in a three foot deep pool. This introduces students to the concept of iterative design and demonstrates the value of testing and redesign.

5eBoard Hands-On Interdisciplinary DIY Platform
by Erli Chen

5eBoard is a new platform that uses modular building blocks to construct DIY electronics projects. The system does not involve soldering and all components can be repeatedly used for either different users or projects. 5eBoard DIY kits use real-world components in all levels. Therefore, the knowledge gained in the beginning can be extended to college and beyond. Schools across the country are adapting 5eBoard DIY kits for their STEM curriculum and after school programs such as makerspaces.

In this event, attendees will have hands-on opportunities to design and construct 5eBoard-based projects.
