What's Included

Young engineers will design smart electronics in this fun, project-centered introduction to creative DIY smart circuits. Our creations will light up, beep, spin, and inspire! We’ll explore circuit design with Snap Circuits and create sensors with littleBits. We’ll hand-write electrically conductive poems with CircuitScribe and build touch-sensitive devices with the MaKey MaKey controller, transforming everyday objects into buttons and switches. We’ll mold and shape our own circuit inputs with Squishy Circuits, a conductive Play-Doh material that emphasizes creativity. And we’ll make paper circuits and wearable electronics that allow us to interact with our world. This is a great introduction to “physical computing”, the Design Thinking Process, and computer hardware functionality and design...all without computers! Instructors: MAKERState

About This Organizer

For over 130 years the Ethical Culture Fieldston School has been committed to excellence in education as it seeks to develop the intellectual, artistic and moral potential of its students. ECFS serves approximately 1,700 students and 325 faculty and staff in our four divisions. Ethical Culture, Fieldston Lower, Fieldston Middle, and Fieldston upper. Ethical Culture is located in midtown Manhattan on Central Park West, in a six-story, turn-of-the-century school building; the other divisions share an 18-acre campus in the Riverdale Section of the Bronx.

Through an academic program that is demanding, rigorous, and through, we encrouage our students to challenge themselves in innovative ways, so they can reach their highest potential in mind, body, and spirit. We approach education in an interdisciplinary, experiential, and colaborative way, helping our students develop a lifelong passion for learning and understanding of its relevance beyond the classroom. As ethical learning provides the foundation of all that we do, we emphasize our students' moral development, and guide them towards service and social justice. The admirable successes of our graduates in a wide range of fields - from the arts to the sciences, from business to public service - and their contribution to society, attest to the promise of ECFS realized.
