Biology, physics, space science, engineering and robotics come together in this STEM-centered exploration of the Star Wars saga! We’ll learn about physics and space science as we review the feasibility of key Star Wars events. We’ll engineer our own light sabers and use green screen technology to create photos of our glowing light sabers in action. From Naboo to Tatooine, we’ll examine the properties of different regions to design vehicles adapted for different terrain. After developing our coding skills, we’ll program our robotic friend BB-8 to navigate through a maze.
