Description

Come one, come ALL young minds, and hop on the MAKER train! Our minds are made for MAKE-ing and this cutting edge camp is guaranteed to inspire the emerging inventor, designer, artist, engineer, and tinkerer. STEAM thinking gets activated through hands-on exploration with intelligent robots, stop-motion animation, game design, and app-enabled building blocks that teach innovation. Children engage with the inventor’s cycle by snapping together electronic building blocks to create various gimzos and gadgets. Discover the FUN-damentals of programming with three intelligent robots that have big personalities. Build mechanical devices to solve problems and invent an app-enabled smart car. We move from the past to the present of game design, leading an animated character on an adventure using coding blocks. Take a look back at early animation and then move to the present using green screens to create animation shorts. MAKE and take-home an electric wiggle bot, circuit creature, moving picture device, mechanical grabber, and so much more. This camp shows every child that the future is theirs for the MAKE-ing!
