Ryerson’s Ryerson Athletics and Ryerson Library’s Digital Media Experience Lab are pleased to present a workshop for high school students to explore digital tools and technologies through a collaborative design studio.
Hosted at the Library’s Digital Media Experience Lab on the third floor of the new Student Learning Centre in downtown Toronto, participants complete two major design projects with the guidance of graduate students and faculty.
The first project familiarizes students with ideation and basic robotics, using accessible 3D software and open-source electronics. The second project ties everything together by incorporating 3D printing, Arduino Development Boards and sensors / actuators to create working robots. Projects are completed in collaboration with other students and the complexity of the projects are matched to the skills of the registrants to ensure all participants can customize their experience.
Students also have time to explore Ryerson University and the surrounding downtown core and leave the camp with working robots they’ve designed and built, including all electrical and mechanical components.
This workshop is designed for all high-school students aged 14-17 years old (grades 9-12) with an interest in design, technology, science, and engineering.
Canada’s knowledge-based economy is continuing to grow requiring graduates to be well versed in all types of digital tools and technologies. This intensive workshop gives students an opportunity to engage with these technologies in a post-secondary environment.
