Tech & Touch days provide a high-end STEM learning experience that won't be forgotten! Our goal is to inspire young learners to use their talents to change the world through technological innovation! View our lab descriptions below. We're adding more all the time.
Our labs use the latest technologies to teach youth "how things work" and nurture their curiosity. Each lab is aligned to Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS).
We’ll discuss the fundamental concepts about robots and what a robot must have to be considered a robot. We’ll also briefly describe the different ways robots move and explore the engineering principles behind how mecanum wheels work in preparation for our robot races.
Wakanda Tech is a lab focused on the technology and culture presented in the movie Black Panther. Want to learn more about their advanced modes of transportation? During this lab we’ll learn how drone technology is used in the movie Black Panther and how it’s used in real life.
OASIS provides two instructors, the curriculum (including handouts), and all of the equipment and materials required to conduct the event for the full (or half) day. The labs are very hands-on and create high levels of excitement!
What does the host organization provide?
The host will provide OASIS' instructors with enough space to conduct the lab. The best space is usually the gymnasium or the school cafeteria. OASIS will require a projection surface
What if we have more students that a full-day can accomodate?
There's always the option to add an additional day. If desired, we can also schedule consecutive days. Let's discuss your options.
Do we need to provide volunteers to assist?
The short answer is no. We provide two instructors to handle the instruction and hands-on activities. However, you should have one to two adults to assist with group management of the students/learners.
Why do you use such advanced technologies?
Competing for the attention of young learners in a technology rich society is hard. There are so many distractions that we fight fire with fire. We provide a tech-heavy experiential learning opportunity and couple it with a thoughtful educational component to create lasting memories. It is our hope that these memorable experiences will serve as the catalyst that drives their curiosity to learn more.
How far in advance can I schedule a Tech & Touch?
You can schedule a Tech & Touch up to 9 months in advance. We actually prefer early scheduling as it helps us in our planning.
What if I have more questions?
