Artisan’s Asylum 2-Week Virtual Program for Grades 6-10: Build a Martian Colony

This summer Artisan’s Asylum, a 10-year-old makerspace in Somerville, is offering a two-week, immersive virtual program, Mission Control: Build a Martian Colony, for students entering Grades 6-10. The program will run in two sections, July 20-31 and August 10-21, with each running online 10AM-3PM, Monday through Friday. No prior experience is required, just an interest in engineering, robotics, and space exploration. The goal will be to solve engineering challenges and program robots to create safe structures for a team of three astronauts. A kit of materials will be provided for pickup or mailing. Students will learn about programming, robotics & engineering, hands-on building, and critical thinking/problem-solving. Pay what you can afford in the range of $300-$800 per student.
