Minds In Motion
  • Electricity and Magnet-mania - Learn all about electronics, magnetism, and more in this fun and educational hands-on workshop! Take part in our Minds in Motion electronic lab and take home your very own circuit kit. With the aid of your instructor, simply follow the colorful pictures in your manual to build up to 100 exciting projects such as a flying saucer, alarm, and doorbell! All parts are mounted on plastic modules and snap together with ease. You will also take part and witness many cool magnetic experiments including making and taking home the World’s Simplest Motor!
  • Chemical Creations - Come experience a hands-on world of fun as you conduct a variety of scientific experiments! You will make and take home a wide assortment of doodads and formations that you created all on your own. Learn and discover many different scientific concepts in an entertaining and innovative approach. Generate your own growing cube and make a shiny clean penny! Make your very own UV bracelet and watch it react to the sun. Learn all about energy and molecules, create a crazy bouncy glob from glue, and some scary green slime! You will also get to witness some really cool scientific demonstrations from your instructor.
  • Kingii Dragon Robot Workshop — Build and take home your very own Kingii Dragon Robot! Based on the chalamydosaurus kingii, or frilled lizard, this robot is a smart super lizard with artificial intelligence (AI) and one of the wackiest lizards to roam planet Earth! Kingii Dragon Robot has an infrared sensor that is programmed for two different modes. If it is activated in the “escape” mode, the robot will feel threatened, gape its mouth, dramatically spread and flap its frill, illuminate its bi-color LED eyes, and scurry away to safety! In the “follow-me” mode, the robot will assess danger by bluffing the attacker. When the robot does not sense danger it might approach you like a pet lizard. Students will also free-build with hundreds of robotic parts and control their robotic creations using remotes and engines to see who can build the strongest and fastest robot.
  • Robotic Arm Technology - Experience the best of robotic technology by assembling and taking home your very own Robotic Arm Edge! The Robotic Arm Edge consists of five motors used to move its wrist, elbow, and base. Using the five-switch remote, you can learn how to lift and drop items with an amazing vertical reach of 15 inches and horizontal reach of 12.6 inches. Command the gripper to open and close and use your robotic arm to lift a capacity of 100 grams! WOW! Added features include a search light design on the gripper and a safety gear audible indicator on all five gear boxes to prevent any potential injury or gear breakage during operation. You will also compete in our Minds in Motion robotic battles free building with hundreds of robotic parts!
