McCutcheon High School Robotics presents winter workshops

Creation Station Workshop (5th – 8th grade)

Saturday, December 2nd 2017, 10am-12pm
Saturday, December 9th 2017, 10am-12pm

In the Engineering field, nothing will be done without the creation of a product. In
this workshop, the students will go through a series of three stations that highlight key
factors of the Engineering field. Students will construct tables from paper to hold
textbooks, and learn about structural stability and weight distribution. They will also
construct/race balloon-powered dragsters and learn about aerodynamics. Finally, the
students will create miniature paddle boats and learn about hydrodynamics, stability
and weight distribution. This workshop introduces students to the manufacturing
process in a simple, safe, and entertaining way.

Design Workshop (5th – 8th grade)

Saturday, December 2nd 2017, 12:30pm-2:30pm
Saturday, December 9th 2017, 12:30pm-2:30pm

One of the many important aspects of Engineering is Design. Without a design, nobody
will know what the finished project will look like. In this 2 hour workshop, the students
will use online design software- to create a design for a keychain they would like to
make. Students will then use the laser cutter (with help from a mentor), to create their
keychain design and take it home. This workshop will teach the fundamentals of
design and its importance in the Engineering field in a fun and memorable way.
