Hack Shack Tech Club

If you like to make, tinker, design, and engineer, then the Hack Shack Tech Club is for you!

This club gives children the opportunity to explore science and technology in a whole new way as they experiment with computer programming and even design their very own video game!

Classes held the first Thursday of each month from 5pm-7pm at the NEW Stiles-Nicholson STEM Education Center across the street from the Science Center.


Upcoming 2017 sessions:

September 28th – Minecraft 3D Modeling **The September 7th class was rescheduled due to Hurricane Irma**

                Everybody loves Minecraft but sometimes building entire landscapes one block at a time can be time-consuming and tedious. During this session, we’ll show you how to design your own 3D structures and import them into MinecraftEDU (an educational version of Minecraft). You’ll learn fundamentals of 3D computer-assisted design and then see what your 3D creation looks like in the world of Minecraft.


October 5th– Sploder Game Lab

                Sploder is a free web-based video game design platform that is versatile and user-friendly. You can design and play many different styles of video games. This session will walk you through a brief tutorial and help get you well on the way to designing and sharing your own Sploder games.


November 2nd – Underwater Robotics

                During this session, we’ll look at the basics of underwater unmanned robotic vehicles. You’ll assemble and operate miniature remote operated underwater vehicles.


December 7th – Intro to Video Editing

                Making your own video is not as complicated as you think. During this session, we’ll look at easy ways to get started with video editing as you produce your very own short video.
