Pinewood Derby Car Workshop February 2
Who: Scouts preparing for the Pinewood Derby Car races, their families and several Newton’s Attic Eagle Scouts and staff to assist you. Non-Scouts welcome, too! Time: Stay as long as you need to starting at the time you register for. Plan to work an hour to two hours depending on the complexity of your car and if you plan to just cut or also sand,  paint and put on weights and wheels. What You Need: You will need to bring your own car kit and weights. You can purchase weights (and many other parts) at Hobby Town in Woodhill, Michael's and Walmart (open Sundays) or at Hobby Lobby (NOT open Sundays). We will provide paint and brushes but only the spare paint we already have, so if you want a certain color, please bring it.  What we have:  Newton’s Attic will provide a workshop, work tables, bandsaws, a scroll saw, drill presses, a belt sander,  hand tools, sandpaper, paint, brushes, a place to paint, a digital scale, copies of the office Derby Car Build rules and some sample templates. We have wi-fi and a printer, so please bring your computers if you’d like to find and print different templates. We also have  a lounge area, for tag along family members, and several Newton’s Attic staff to assist parents and Scouts with the tools as needed. New!: Thanks to Toyoto's sponsorship of our Gravit Racers program with the BMW and Sphinx Academy students, we now have an official timed, Best Track for Scouts to try out their cars! Other important information: One adult must stay with the children s/he brings. We will have staff on hand to assist but not enough for every Scout, so plan to work with your child. Children can use power tools at Newton's Attic with the assistance and supervision of a staff member or parent, and we will provide safety training on the machines. If you are not comfortable with your child using a tool, you may use it for him or ask us to. We provide safety glasses, but you and your Scout should wear closed-toed shoes, and long hair should be pulled back. We will also ask that you remove loose clothing that could get caught in a machine.  We sell snacks on site, but you may bring your own. We have a fridge, toaster oven and microwave. Papa John’s in Palomar delivers to us for the school price ($6.50 or a large, single topping pizza). Have our office number *859-368-7334) handy for them to pull up our delivery address and discount.

Digital Inventors: Virtual Reality (5th-8th Grades) 2/17/20 Full-Day
Virtual Reality is a rapidly expanding field of study for many computerspecialists, from game developers to medical researchers. Learn tocreate and explore a full size reactive model of your project, aninvaluable talent for many engineers. Students who sign up for this class can expect to learn how to setupand operate the HTC Vive, a room-scale virtual reality tool. Studentswill also learn how to use industry standard modeling and CAD suitesto create 3D models and environments. Students will then get theopportunity to load their personal 3D model into their virtualenvironment and manipulate it as they see fit. So, strap on yourheadset, gear up your imagination and get ready for a real excursioninto virtual reality.

RoboCoding I (1st-3rd Grades) 2/17/20 Morning
Games, mazes, robots … OH MY! OzoBots and Spheros will be used to introduce students to the concepts of coding at a young age. Coding will help students make sense of problems, reason abstractly and quantitatively, and use logic reasoning skills to complete tasks. Students will learn how to code through Hour of Code and Ozoblockly. Although programming is done on the computer, this class has incorporated engaging physical activities and games to teach about programming code. The students will also work collaboratively to program their robots to complete several mazes. GAMES, MAZES, and ROBOTS…OH MY! The Ozo Coding I and Robo Coding I classes were developed for Newton's Attic by two-time Kentucky Teacher of the Year, Ms. Melanie Trowel (2014 and 2020) to provide an age-appropriate and meaningful introduciton to coding for little ones.

Digital Inventors: 3D Printing (5th-8th Grades) 2/17/20 Morning
Dream, design, and build your invention using our 3D printing lab in this engineering design focused camp. Starting off we will explore the different types, capabilities and limitations of modern 3D printers by downloading, modifying and printing existing designs. You will then get an introduction to professional 3D design software where you can design items of your own to be printed throughout the week. During this process you will learn tips and tricks to make your design easier to produce using additive manufacturing (the technical term for 3D printing).  *Note – 3D printers are not fast. The size of the objects we can print will be limited by the available time.  * Older students (and adults!) can take this class if they don't mind being with younger students.

Rube Goldberg Machines (3rd-5th Grades) 2/17/20 Full-Day
We’ve all seen them, but not everyone knows them by name. Rube Goldberg machines are contraptions made of household items, junk and just about anything that can be connected together in a convoluted arrangement that can be set off to produce a chain reaction of motion that typically ends in some sort of grand finale. In this introductory class, young students learn how to engineer table top sized Rube Gold-bergs from all sorts of items found in the extensive collection of vintage parts at Newton’s Attic. So crank up your creativity, imagination, sense of humor, and get ready to learn about tool use, basic engineering and outside the box thinking in this entertaining and educational experience. * This class is oriented for grades 3-5. However, older students are welcome to register as long as they are aware they may be with younger students. ** Please note that students will be using power tools such as scroll and bandsaws and drill presses with saftely training and supervision.

Da Vinci Kids (1st-3rd Grades) 2/17/20 Afternoon
Science, math, engineering, art: Da Vinci was a master of it all. In this class designed exclusively for young developing minds, students get to follow in his footsteps by engaging in a variety of stimulating activities that cut across a wide range of disciplines. Tool use, building and engineering, chemistry and biology, art and design, spontaneous improvisation, and healthy dose of brain and body play are all mixed together to form this experience. Each activity will last anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes as students move from one subject to the next while making new discoveries about the diverse world around them. Who knows - with this wide range of topics, your child just may discover something of interest that he or she never even imagined. * Please note that students may be using power tools such as scroll and band saws, and drill presses, with safety training and under close supervision.
