2.Techcamp with IoT

In today’s world, our homes are full of automated devices-thermostats, alarm systems, lights, blinds and shades, and audio systems! We “speak” to our automated home through a remote control or smart device. Whatever our needs and preferences, now is an exciting time to be involved with the Internet of Things and the automation field.

In this workshop, we dive into IoT and technology. Participants will combine an Arduino Uno kit and several other electronic components, with the popular “Scratch” interface without the use of complex programming languages. This camp allows you to discover and develop your aptitude for automation.

3. Making Noise

Making the right kind of sounds is a combination of objects and sciences. We will explore various ways in which sounds can be made, using a wide range of things - using both everyday physical objects around us and going into making sounds digitally. Over the period of the workshop, we will make a number of objects that can be used to make sound. You will also be involved in experimenting with the physics and math behind how sound is made, putting together sounds to form noisy music and working with saws, hammers, drills, computers, software, wood, plastics. You will get a taste of 'constructionism' - where we try and understand an aspect of the world around us by making - both with our hands and in our minds. This workshop is aimed towards students interested in the Design and Build - STEM Learning course at Srishti Bangalore.

Equipment: Laptops
Duration: 5 Full days
Level: Grades: 8 to 10, Grades: 11 to 12
Days: 8 to 12 May 2017
Date and Time: Mon to Fri, 9:30 am to 4:30 pm
Location: Srishti campus
Cost: Rs. 15,000/-

Leaders:

Lavanya Sahi is trained as an architect and works in different learning environments. At Srishti she teaches a mix of courses which are play and technology driven. She is interested in working with a mix of traditional and technological materials.

Gautham Dayal has a PhD from TIFR and is a mathematician. He is involved in the role that allows him to see how ‘make’, ‘play’ and ‘tinker’ build understanding. In this context, he is also interested in exploring how the collection of traditional materials one normally works with can be extended to include computers and other programmable objects.

4. Paper Structures

Explore how a flat piece of paper can be transformed into 3-dimensional forms. Fold and cut paper to build shapes that you can visualize in your mind. Use basic geometric tools to make nets, pop-ups and movements. You will learn the use of traditional geometry-box tools alongside software and computer-controlled paper cutting. Explore how geometric intuition can be extended by applying it to making forms. This workshop is aimed towards students interested in the Design and Build - STEM Learning course at Srishti, Bangalore. This course gives you the necessary skills and tools to design and build both experiences and equipment.

5. Biochrome – Living Colors

Have you ever wished you could snatch a few colors off the peacock’s brilliant feathers? Or stroke a sunflower and cherish the yellowness on your hand? Is it ever possible, or is it just a flight of fantasy? Let’s pause for a moment to simply look, observe and accumulate the colors of the wild to create biochromes. In this camp you will extract colours from various natural materials such as plants, animals and even microbes and use them on a canvas of your own interest! In this way, you will play with media and living colours to connect with the micro and the macro world!
