|Introduction to 3D Design||This session will introduce 3D Design using Tinkercad, a free 3D design platform that is great for beginners. At the end of the workshop, you will be able to make a basic model ready to 3D print.|
|Arduino Basics||This hands-on session will introduce you to the basics of Arduino. We will work with a virtual Arduino kit. At the end of the workshop, you will have a general understanding of circuitry and how to create a simple circuit using Arduino.|
|Arduino: Beyond Basics||This hands-on session will move beyond creating basic circuits. We will work with various sensors and other signal types. It is recommended that you attend the “Arduino: Basics” workshop beforehand or have a basic understanding of circuits and microcontrollers.|
|Introduction to Stop Motion||Learn the basics for creating a Stop Motion video using Stop Motion Studio app and a mobile phone or tablet. At the end of the workshop, you will have knowledge of the tools, software and steps needed to make a basic Stop Motion video.|
|Podcast Basics||This introductory workshop will introduce you to the tools and resources related to podcasts. You will learn about best practices for creating a podcast, including choosing a format, comparing recording software and selecting the proper equipment needed to complete your digital project.|
|You Can Build a Robot||Learn about 3D printing, microcontrollers and coding by building your own dancing robot! Sign up for one of our online introduction sessions to learn about the program. Space is limited.|
The Makerspace has a Co-Curricular Record called “Creative Digital Technologies“. Attend four workshops and complete a reflection paper to earn a Co-Curricular Record. Look for the posting on the CCR website.
The Co-Curricular Record (CCR) is an official institutional document that recognizes your involvement outside the classroom, as a significant part of your U of T experience.
