Arcadia Bildungscampus | Fall Camp Week 2 | Design For The Future Junior

Design isn’t just about creation; it’s about harnessing creativity to solve real world problems and improve people's lives- through the use of innovation. Our holiday camp takes students on an exciting journey of solving real world problems through hands-on exploration & product development using the Design Thinking Process. The project-based curriculum alignes with prompts based on the UN's Sustainable Development Goals -- a collection of 17 global goals set by the United Nations General Assembly in 2015 for the year 2030. In collaboration with Citizen Cyber Lab,Open Seventeen, and Micro:bit - do your :bitwe incorporate their prompts to mentor students through the design process to reach desired outcomes.

Invention, however, requires more than just curiosity and creativity – it requires the KNOWLEDGE & SKILLS to carry a design to fruition. TechLabs teachers help students gain the knowledge to facilitate THEIR ideas, THEIR invention, and THEIR vision and to show them how to implement it with new technologies.

This course is offered as both Design For The Future (ages 12-16) and Design For The Future Junior (ages 8-11) allowing students of a wide variety of age and skill levels to participate and learn how to use technology to innovate for a better future!

Past Projects:

This is no ordinary 3D printing class, this is using technology for humanitarian aid! In collaboration with the Enabling The Future project, children design, create and deliver a prosthetic robotic hand to underprivileged children throughout the world. 1 in 2000 children are born each day that can benefit from a prosthetic device produced in conjunction with this program.  Over 6000 prosthetic arms have already been successfully donated by Enabling The Future. This highly focused course teaches how a group of STEM students can come together and provide access to life-improving technology. We have built a special curriculum, utilizing all of TechLabs’ resources, to engage children in a highly focused project where they will get to experience the impact of open source technology to lower barriers to innovation and provide access to life-improving technology. TechLabs is Switzerland's ONLY Enabling The Future Certified fabrication and assembly partner. 

Students are introduced to the concept of Design Thinking through designing and building their own Robotic Pet that responds to various sensor inputs with sound, light, and wagging tails, wiggling ears, waving arms, whatever their imagination can dream up. Kids are encouraged to think outside the box, no idea is a bad idea and the more ideas the better! They develope the code and build the electromechanical system necessary to bring thier pet to life.
