Interested in individual or group projects for teens interested in technology. Could include mechanical, electronic and/or programming elements. Recently completed a year of coaching high-school robotics called FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC), based at our own Maker/robotics workspace in West LA. The teens used Autodesk Inventor Pro for CAD and RobotC for programming. They machined custom metal parts, and built custom electronics with a platform similar to Arduino. Before that, four years coaching an active year-round robotics program in FIRST LEGO League (FLL) for ages 9 to 14, using the LEGO Mindstorms NXT.
I'm a father of two boys (13 and 16) who are interested in science, tinkering, robotics and LEGO.
