workshops

UT Austin 

Explore a world of microbits. Participants will learn introductory skills while creating and designing a game while collaborating with other participants. Once the game is completed, groups will play the game and see their hard work come to life. 


Sumo-Bots with Science In A Suitcase

Blam! Ka-Pow! Bonk! Spend time programming and designing your own robot! Together, we dress up and mad-lib the story of an interstellar-robotic battle. There can be only one intergalactic champion!

Applied Materials 

This workshop will introduce the concepts of nanotechnology and microchip transistors and how microchips are used in today’s consumer products. We will have a hands-on activity where participants make their own “transistor” using cookies, frosting, and sprinkles.

Meta
Students will get to learn all about Meta’s new technological advances through the brand ambassadors. Students will be introduced to Smart RayBan Glasses in this workshop.
