Hosted by Turn5, this free community event will take place in Paoli, PA and will highlight emerging technology. We have partnered with local organizations who specialize in the education of these technologies specifically designed for children.
Upon arrival, each child will receive a Tech Passport Book. Children will be encouraged to explore the space and visit unique learning stations at their own pace. At each station they will learn about a tech topic and will be encouraged to ask questions and try out different tech gadgets. Stations will include:
The Electricity Station
The Franklin Institute’s Electricity Tabletop Exploration will lead you through hands-on experiments like the Van de Graaff generator, plasma balls, and the Tesla coil.
Learn about Aerospace Engineering & Hardware Engineering by designing your own straw rocket or creating a musical instrument in Engineering for Kids’ interactive station.
Web Development Station
Using some of today's most in-demand programming languages, get hands-on experience with web design and learn more about what it takes to build a website and become a front-end developer.
Get hands-on with some amazing robotics stations and learn about local programs from Downingtown Area Robotics designed for kids of all ages.
Rapid Prototype Station
This learning station will illustrate the concept of rapid prototyping and show kids how ideas get made into real world products. This station will illustrate the idea using cookie cutters made from our mini rapid-prototype station.
Virtual Racing Station
Hop into the seat of virtual race car and take some laps around a race course on our 20’ projector screen. Learn how digital hardware and software work together to create fun and engaging experiences.
Once attendees complete each station, a sticker will be applied to each child’s Tech Passport Book. Those who collect all the stickers and complete their Tech Passport will be entered for a chance to win a MakeyMakey invention kit.
Additional games and food for children and adults will be included. Join us for a day of learning intended to fire up young minds and get them thinking about future technology.
PLUS: To get in the Halloween spirit, attendees are encouraged to wear a Halloween costume. Wear a costume of your choice and you will be entered to win an exclusive raffle prize!
