Da Vinci Workshop

3D Printer and 3D Design

In this workshop, the participants step into the exciting world of 3D printing. Getting inspiration from the life and achievements of Leonardo Da Vinci, they observe objects around them from the perspective of a designer. They get introduced to 3D printers and understand their potential as they start to 3D print everyday life objects. They also develop their capabilities to think in 3D as they model the objects on the computer. They start their designs using simple sketches, do a team brainstorming, and use design thinking methods to work just like industrial designers.

Elon Musk Workshop

Programming with Arduino

In this workshop, the participants start programming with Arduino electronic boards. They understand the logic behind programming and the sensors technology which are used in machines around us. They first play games where they write algorithms and then write codes in different languages just as a software programmer would. Using Arduinos boards, they see how they can add different behaviors and movements to objects.

Sherlock Holmes Workshop

Problem Solving

In this workshop, the participants build their own camera microscopes and enter the world of forensics. They develop their skills to look for logical explanations to events which occur around us every day. Within a made-up scenario, they collect samples from a crime scene, use problem solving skills and different technologies to understand how an incident happened. At the end of this workshop, they feel just like professional detectives who have solved the mystery hidden in the crime scene.

Turing Workshop

Coding

In this workshop, the participants enter the world of coding with Code.org or Scratch. They discover the logic of algorithms which forms the foundation of coding and see how algorithms can be used to explain how everything around us works. They understand the importance of doing algorithm sequencing In even the simplest tasks which they carry out in their lives. Finally, they create animations using online coding platforms and feel just like computer programmers.

Robotics Workshop

Lego Mindstorms and Mbot

In this workshop, the participants start discovering the interactive world of robotics using algorithms and electronics knowledge they acquire from our entry level workshops. They understand the working principles of sensors and start coding to make these sensors communicate with each other. They either use mBot or Lego Mindstorm robotic kits to design their robots just like engineers of the future would.

Hezarfen Çelebi Workshop

Aeronautics

In this workshop, the participants enter the world of aeronautics and find out what it takes to defy gravity. They observe the invisible power of the air and use it to find ways to make things take flight. They build model airplanes, design and launch rockets, find out about how parachutes help to land safely, and get introduced to the world of drones. They work with the discipline of aeronautics engineers and understand how much difference a few millimeters make in aviation calculations.

Circular Design Workshop

Recycling

This workshop is designed specifically to raise environmental awareness in kids. The participants find out what they can make out of plastic packaging and other recyclable materials we use in our everyday lives. They work just like a material scientist as they start with recycling basic household waste. They also find out how recycled plastic filaments can be used with 3D printers.  

Wearable Technologies Workshop

Arduino Lilypad

In this workshop, the participants will see how technology and fashion can complement each other. They will transform normal clothes and accessories using Arduino Lilypad kits. While they work just like tailor-engineers, they will realize how interactive clothes can become when wearable technologies are used.

Biomimicry Design Workshop

In this workshop, the participants discover the world of objects and tools designed with inspiration taken from nature. They observe how certain plants and animals have adapted to survive and design their own tools with inspiration from nature. They work just like a biomimicry specialist as they use the data they gather from the microscope and photographs.

Space with Stellarium and Discovering Exoplanets

In this workshop, children have the opportunity to closely examine the sky and celestial objects visible from the world with the Stellarium sky simulation program. Instead of just looking at the sky from Istanbul, they examine the sky from any place and any time on Earth. They travel to the past with the mythological stories of the constellations. They discuss how to explore other planets. For this, they create an experimental setup with Arduino and various sensors, and perform light analysis like an astronomer and go on a planet hunt in the depths of space.

Smart Factories and Industry 4.0

Digital transformation and the 4th industrial revolution are always on the agenda of many companies from different industries. In this workshop, the participants produce a robot arm with pieces printed from 3D printers after examining the production methods in smart factories. They first operate the robotic arms they produce with a hydraulic system and then program their robotic arms by combining them with the Arduino electronic board. This workshop shows how a factory operates using robots and is a unique opportunity to observe and use the production methods of the future at an early age.

Smart Cities and Smart Transportation

In this workshop, the participants find out about what smart cities are and which technologies they typically use. The traffic problem of a city is solved using different algorithms and Arduino electronic boards. The participants simulate different scenarios and observe first hand what happens on a physical model of a city.

Flight Simulation (Boeing 737)

In this workshop, the participants start with the basic principles of flying and test how planes move during flight using model planes. They learn how to use a Boeing 737 flight simulator where they take off from Sabiha Gökçen Airport in the simulator in accordance and tour above the Bosphorus.
