Here you’ll learn the fundamentals of quad piloting, including aerial maneuvers, crash avoidance, control systems and basic repairs (because everybody crashes!).

Students learn on and go home with their very own quadcopter drone that they can customize during class.

Games Galore
In Games Galore we’ll push your skills to the limit by designing and building our own games! This hands-on class fosters a free-form creative spirit through mini-projects and multi-session culminating builds of arcade-style games. During Games Galore, students learn pre-planning, rapid prototyping, useful construction techniques, mechanical engineering basics, decorating skills and proper tool use — oh yeah, and we just have a great time making amazing stuff!

Our Pro-level 3D printing class! The perfect next step for graduates of our 3D Printing Exploration Classes and Camps.

We’re going to dive deeper into 3D design with some fun projects that explore the more artistic side of advanced 3D design. Plus students will get hands-on experience running the 3D printers themselves and learn what it takes to get the best prints of their work. This class requires some experience in 3D design. If this is your first 3D printing class, check out our 3D Printing Exploration classes!

Maker Lab
A new Bolts & Bytes experience! In Maker Lab we do a new and different project every week. We pull our projects from our growing list of all the cool stuff that we've been wanting to share with students, but that just don't fit into our regular classes. Every week we look at a different way of making or explore a new technique.

Maker Lab is a 16-week series that meets weekly from Aug 29th to Dec 19.

Want to join just a single session? No problem! Just contact Reed Beaubouef at (904) 334-5664 or at reed@boltsandbytes.club to work out arrangements.

We work in a 3D design environment that’s as easy to use as it is powerful — so no matter what your previous experience, we’ll have you printing your 3D creations in no time!
