Collinsville HOT!

Hello Folks... I hope you and the kiddos are having a fantastic Summer!  We wanted to let you know that this Saturday, July 20th is the 5th Annual Collinsville HOT Festival in Canton, CT!  The Collinsville HOT is a great day of Summer Fun with live music, artisans, great food, games for the kiddos, and plenty of unique shopping experiences from local-area merchants.  This year at the Collinsville HOT, NextGen SmartyPants® will be hosting a number of events specifically for our fellow Educators in the community.  If you’ve considered integrating NGSS®, Robotics, Coding, Arduino, and other technology educational programs for your Elementary, Middle, or High School students, consider checking out some of these programs on Saturday...

Hands-on Experiences
Beginning at 12PM, NextGen SmartyPants® will open-up a 30-foot booth set-up with multiple hands-on experiences stations.  There will be Robotics, Solar and Wind Energy Engineering, Coding, Circuits, Motor Control, and more. 

Magic Powers Robotics

At 12:30 PM, the NextGen SmartyPants® Chill Zone will be featuring The Magic of Peter James.  Immediately following, at 1:15PM, children ages 4-7yo will be invited to try their own hands at Magic Powers Robotics.  They will be making Magic Wands, Spinning Stars, and Bunnies popping out of Hats, all built, coded, and controlled by kids and powered by Robotics!  If you have kids, this should be a pretty fun (and… shhh… educational) event for them!  

Educators' Workshop

At 3:00 PM, we'll be hosting hands-on experiences workshops specifically for Educators.  We will have multiple stations setup for you to try WeDo® Robotics, EV3 Mindstorms®, Arduino®, Raspberry Pi®, Little Bits®, Scratch®, Python®, Internet Of Things (IOT), and other leading-edge educational technologies!  Our staff will be available to showcase these programs and answer your questions on how they can be used to complement your math and science curricula.  We will also have information available for our NGSS® Professional Development Teacher-Training Programs, Staff Team-Building events, First LEGO® League Robotics Programs, Web and App Development, and A/P Computer Science Programs.  If you are an Educator, you’ll want to check out these programs and get the ideas flowing on how we can setup our kids on a bright path for a technological future.
Fun Prizes and More

Finally, we’ve established multiple partnerships with leading-edge companies like LEGO®, Adafruit®, and many others.  Throughout the day, we'll be hosting fun LEGO® building events and giving away raffles and prizes, so please be sure to stop by and bring the kiddos for what’s sure to be a fun day in beautiful Collinsville!
