    Full STEAM ahead!  In this class, we will be combining art and technology to make one-of-a-kind robots out of common materials like cardboard, paint, and paper and bringing them to life through coding, motors, lights, and a variety of components. 

    The class will begin by introducing the robotics kits we will be using: micro:bit and the HummingbirdBit.  We will explore the different components, how to use them and code them using block-coding applications like MakeCode and Snap. Then we’ll learn different cardboard building techniques and mechanisms that can be used for our creations. Students will then choose a theme (e.g. desert animals) and brainstorm, plan, draw, paint, and build their project around that theme. Creativity is encouraged!

    This is an introductory class. No prior coding or building experience is necessary. To keep the costs of the class down, robotics kits will be provided for use during the class time and will be returned to the instructor at the end of the week. Families will be invited for a socially-distanced sharing time from 3:30 - 4pm on the final day of the class to view and take photos of student creations.  

    We recommend students bring their own devices, whether a laptop (PC or Mac), Chromebook, iPad or iPhone. If they don’t have one, we will have a limited number available to borrow during class.  Upon registration, please select 'Using BARN Computer' or 'Bringing Device From Home'.

    This class has a prerequisite. Please see below.

    Learn to use the VCarve Pro software program to design and cut inlays on the Woodworking Studio's CNC router.

    Each student will attend three of the five  sessions shown as class dates. For the first session, the full class will meet in the Electronics & Technical Arts lab to review VCarve Pro, discuss inlays and start design.

    The remaining sessions will be in the Woodworking Studio. The class will be divided into smaller groups to avoid too much waiting in line. The specific schedule will be finalized at the first class session.

    At its second session, each group will review/finalize designs, learn safe operation of the CNC router, set up the projects, cut the materials (walnut and maple), and glue them up. At the third session, students will cut off excess inlay material and sand the inlays.

    Details:

    • Open to students 14 years old and older who have taken VCarve Pro for CNC Routing.
    • BARN is practicing safety measures for the health and well-being of all participants, in accordance with state and CDC guidelines.

    Get introduced to 3D printing in this one and a half hour session. You'll get to see BARN's printers and gain an understanding of how they work and what they can make.

    You will see a computer file get readied for printing in a process called "slicing."

    You'll see the different printers we have and learn about filament, the material 3D printers use to make prints.  We'll start a print and you'll see the printer print.

    3D printing has many uses, ranging from practical to fun, such as replacement parts, mold-making, medical models used in surgery, prototypes and more.  

    Bring your curiosity and questions. You can continue to use the 3D printers at Open Studio where a studio monitor or other member can help you.

    Beginners ages 14 and up are welcome!

    In this workshop, we will introduce participants to the basics of developing a website. Participants will learn how to build basic, static web pages. You will first learn about how to register a domain and how to pick a web hoster for your web site. You will also learn both HTML (Hyper-Text Markup Language) and CSS (Cascading Style Sheets). The course will use a hybrid format spending most of the classroom time on specific projects. Participants are encouraged to bring to class and work on their own web project. There will be no programs to install and all work can be done within your web browser (Chrome is highly recommended). You are also welcome to use other editors of your choice that support HTML and CSS. You will need a desktop, laptop, Chromebook or tablet that has a web browser. Note: a browser is included in MacOS, Windows, and Chromebooks.

    We will use a variety of online tutorials to learn different aspects of HTML and CSS. There will be four lecture / coding sessions that last two hours over two weeks that will give participants a code base to learn web design. In addition, there will be two open, drop-in, labs on Saturday afternoons that you can attend to work on your programs, get advice and get any questions answered.

    • Session 1 Domain registration and web hosting (7-8:30pm, Monday, August 16th)

    This class is designed for makers getting started with the laser cutter in the Electronic and Technical Arts Studio. You will learn how to operate BARN's laser cutter safely as you make a small item. Successful completion of this workshop is the first step toward becoming qualified for independent operation of the laser cutter. It also prepares you for more advanced laser cutting classes.

    The class covers how to prep a design for cutting and engraving on the laser cutter as well as the set-up, settings and operation of the laser cutter.

    Required: Bring a laptop with Inkscape installed. It is the free design software we use with the laser cutter. Click here to go to Inkscape.org where you can download it. There are versions for Windows, Mac OS and Linux.

    Class size is limited to 4.

    Learn the basic features of LightBurn, essential software that controls both of our new laser machines. This is the software you'll use whether you are quickly cutting out some parts for your project or are fine tuning your complex etching. LightBurn software replaces RetinaEngrave you may have used previously.

    This class will get you started and will help you implement your own creative laser designs. This class is not a substitute for "Intro to the Laser Cutter".

    Who should take this class?

    If you took "Intro to the Laser Cutter" on the Full Spectrum Laser, this class can get you up and running with our new laser cutters. If you've taken "Intro to the Laser Cutter" on the new lasers and are ready to see how to get more from LightBurn, this class is for you. If you used Inkscape and RetinaEngrave with the FSL and didn't like the software, this class is for you. If you loved using Inkscape and RetinaEngrave, you'll learn how LightBurn fits into your workflow.

    The class covers the basics of LightBurn in the laser cutter workflow. It also covers setting laser parameters for cutting and engraving, importing your designs, vector graphics (line art) vs raster graphics (pixel art), manipulating shapes and tuning images, using the laser libraries, and previewing your work.


    Prerequisite: Intro to Laser Cutter

    Class size is limited to 4.

    Instructor:

    Mike Schrempp is enjoying retirement after spending 39 years in the design and development of computers.  He’s done product development, mechanical part design, engineering management, and architected servers used in big data centers at Amazon and Microsoft.  Now he enjoys making things -- from wood, plastic, metal, food, and Python code -- and showing others some of the tricks he’s learned along the way.

    This class is designed for makers getting started with the laser cutter in the Electronic and Technical Arts Studio. You will learn how to operate BARN's laser cutter safely as you make a small item. Successful completion of this workshop is the first step toward becoming qualified for independent operation of the laser cutter. It also prepares you for more advanced laser cutting classes.

    The class covers how to prep a design for cutting and engraving on the laser cutter as well as the set-up, settings and operation of the laser cutter.

    Required: Bring a laptop with Inkscape installed. It is the free design software we use with the laser cutter. Click here to go to Inkscape.org where you can download it. There are versions for Windows, Mac OS and Linux. If you don't have a laptop you can bring to the class, please email eta.programming@bainbridgebarn.org as BARN may be able to provide an alternative.
