This year, as in past offerings, all students will build the "ARTYbot", a basic robot constructed using the Lego NXT kit. You will learn how to write programs to make this robot do a lot of different thinking, like drawing a picture on its own, playing music, and navigating around obstacles.
For the art components this year we will be exploring electronic art including collage with motors and LED lights and circuits made with copper tape and conductive paint. We will be creating with a variety of materials that will enable students to make wearable objects such as arm bands/bracelets and pins. `
Overall you will be able to experiment with technologies that are important in ttoday's "electronic age", and you will see how technology can infused and animate art, and best of all, you will have the fun to create and enjoy.
