TinkrWorks (Grades 2-3 & 4-5)-
Grades: 2nd-3rd graders: Mighty Kite: In this project, TinkRers will start with a kite that they will decorate with paint and markers. Then, they will integrate electronics onto the kite (mini computers, programmable LED lights, and sensors) and wire everything together. Finally, TinkRers will code up their creations to have their highly-visible LEDs flash different colors at different heights. What could be more fun?
Grades: 4th & 5th graders: Weather Station: TinkRers will build a weather monitoring system using an Arduino micro-controller and a variety of sensors that allow the collection of weather data. They’ll develop the logic for this weather station by coding their electronics using a visual coding environment built by TinkRworks. TinkRers will learn to apply concepts such as sequencing, loops and conditionals to program the display to report current weather conditions and even make weather predictions!
