Linda Vista Library
2160 Ulric St., San Diego, CA 92111

Slimy ocean animals like octopus, sea stars, sand dollars and moon snails are the focus of this Library NExT class. Students discover the secret of how octopus change color and how oysters make pearls. This class offers a chance to research sea life like a marine biologist and to create like an artist using different types of materials found in nature.

Fire and Ice

Saturday, June 9, 2018
1–4 p.m.
Linda Vista Library
2160 Ulric St., San Diego, CA 92111

Learn how volcanoes erupt and how icebergs form huge chunks of ice that break off from glaciers. Explore how fire and ice are a natural art painting pallet as we learn about the magnetic stripes on the seafloor, how ice sculptures are made and how earthquake records (seismograms) used to be recorded on smoked paper.

Rockin’ Rokenbok Robotics with USD

Rockin’ Rokenbok Robotics with USD

Saturday, June 23, 2018
9:30 a.m.–12 p.m.
USD Loma Hall, Cymer Ideation Space

Rockin’ Rokenbok Robotics with USD

Rock out with USD’s Rokenbok Robotics and join us for a fun, creative morning of robotics challenges for the whole family. Sign up for one of three options:

  1. ROK’n Robots – This open-ended robotics play is a creative activity for ages 3+. Use snap-together Rokenbok construction pieces and motors to build a robot on a motorized chassis. Bring your creation to life with an easy-to-use Rokenbok remote control.
  2. Robotic Lifting Crane Challenge – Teams of four participants ages 9+ start with a lesson about using pulleys to lift heavy objects. Use this knowledge to build a robotic lifting crane using construction pieces and motors while staying within certain parameters (specifications, budget, deadline) just like a real engineering project.
  3. Autonomous Robotics Challenge – Participants ages 12+ will automate a robotic machine that moves nuclear fuel. Add sensors and write the code to ensure your robot does its job with precision and reliability. Easy-to-use graphical block coding and snap-on sensors make this a great challenge for both beginning and experienced roboticists.
