2018~2019 school year
Isla Vista Engineering and Art club
Dancing Robot Production!
April 2019~June 2019
Youth Innovation Club teamed up with UCSB Mechanical Engineering Department and UCSB Society of Women Engineering (SWE) and brought the Dancing Robot production to Isla Vista School. The 5th and 6th graders collaborated with engineering freshmen to design their robots and each robot had a light up stage built by the IV students under the guidance of members from SWE. The new curriculum, designed by Youth Innovation Club, intended to provide an introduction to students about the process of building a modern product - from conceptualizing to realizing an idea, from prototype to final product, and how different disciplines work together for the final deliverables. We hope we created an enjoyable experience for students and were able to inspire them to want to explore more in the world of engineering and design!
