STEAM Dojo by Benesse

For Members of The Tech Museum of Innovation 

Brighten Up Their Day

Paper craft + electrical circuits = unlimited possibilities! Come and join us in this next series of our STEAM Dojo Family Workshops, where you will create your own greeting cards using an innovative inkjet circuit printer and LEDs. You can cut, fold and draw on it like any other sheet of paper -- but you can also design, connect and electrify your circuits and LEDs to light up your card!
On Sunday, May 11, we will be featuring a special Mother’s Day-inspired card-making session. Make a card for all the motherly figures in your life, and light up her heart with a lit-up card, made especially for her, by you!
 
This workshop is recommended for participants 7 years old and up, with a $15 fee per child/teen participant + guardian (sold together as one combination ticket). Please bring the emailed confirmation with you and proceed to the Tech Studio on the Lower Level to check in 10 minutes before the start of the workshop.

What is STEAM Dojo?

STEAM = science, technology, engineering, art, and math
Dojo = a place to learn and participate, or a “place of the way”
STEAM Dojo is an experiential learning and tinkering environment, where you can work on projects at the intersection of art and technology. The Tech is partnering with Benesse to bring you a series of these weekend workshops over the next few months. Projects will change each month, so stay tuned for more info on upcoming workshops!

Past Workshops

LightCUBE
What do you get when you combine LEDs, origami, and stop motion animation? Join us for the first in our series of STEAM Dojo Family Workshops, LightCUBE, and find out! In this Members-exclusive workshop, you’ll create paper cubes, lit up by LEDs, to use as building blocks in your very own stop motion animation film. Team up with other Members, combining your LightCUBEs, to produce a glowing movie masterpiece. Afterwards, share your masterpiece in The Tech Studio, transformed into LightCUBE Theater, and take home your LightCUBEs for more at-home movie magic.

 
The LightCUBE workshop is recommended for participants 7 years old and up, with a $15 fee per child/teen participant (parents and guardians join in for free!). Please bring the emailed confirmation with you and proceed to the Tech Studio on the Lower Level to check in 10 minutes before the start of the workshop.
