Classes

OlyMEGA offers a variety of classes and workshops (both free and paid) on a variety of technical and artistic subjects.

Our largest course was a 12-week series focused on STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) education.

The class consisted of 3 modules:

  • Programming – Learn the basic concepts needed to program a computer, then use what you’ve learned to affect the real world, using Arduino
  • Robotics – Learn about robots, from the “Curiosity” Mars Rover to the Roomba, then build one of your very own, and teach it to navigate!
  • Radio – Learn about the invisible electromagnetic energy that surrounds us every day, then put this into practice by adding manual controls to your ‘bot!
