BITBOTS + Space - Has your child ever wondered what’s out there in the universe? In this class we explore space by inventing and building with recycled materials and by sharing our big ideas about all kinds of possibilities. Outer space offers a great foundation for inventive building and creative thought because there is still so much that we do not know and can spend time imagining. In Bitbots + Space, students become explorers, creating inventions like alien language translators and high-tech spacecraft to explore beyond our solar system. Through trial and error, they will practice problem-solving and resilience in response to difficulty and roadblocks.

Equipment: Tape, Scissors, Recyclables (Cardboard, plastic containers, plastic bottles, paper rolls…. anything clean you can find in the recycle bin!)

Course Instructor

Monika Wuhrer

Monika Wuhrer is the founder and executive director of Open Source Gallery and KoKo NYC. Originally from Austria, she received her MFA in sculpture from the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna. Monika founded Open Source Gallery and its education wing in 2007. She is the mother of 3 boys and realized that education in New York City is missing programs that encourage kids to play, explore and build without the standard supervision parents and other programs provide, but by letting kids assess their own risk, while still being supervised and kept safe. Monika has exhibited in the US, Norway, Austria, Italy, Thailand, Finland, France, Switzerland, and Japan.
