Make Your Own Cable Car



Make Your Own Cable Car

Make Your Own Gondola | Ages 10-15
Offered: Week 4 (AM)

Build a simple machine or robot that travels suspended from a rope or wire (similar to a ski lift). Sometimes called a gondola or cable car, your machine will be based on the popular micro:bit. Use a small motor and three or more circuits to drive a wheel. You can decorate your machine and add lights or sensors to make it more beautiful or to change its behavior. Design other versions: use a different motor, use solar power, and more! Best of all, campers bring their creations home with them at the end of the week! No previous engineering experience is necessary.  Instructor: David Alsdorf, Acera Artist-in-Residence and Computer Science teacher $300
