Summer of Makers - 2017

This Summer The Maker Mill is proud to introduce our new STEM Learning concept called Experiences…

Experiences provide for an immersive week long or day long set of activities developed around a particular theme.  Kids will experience engineering concepts using fun games, technology and art to get hands on learning experiences with a guided instructor.  After 3 years of working with kids and STEM education we have found that children enjoy being immersed in actives around a common theme. 

Join The Maker Mill for our Summer of Makers workshop program.  Each week is packed with a variety of STEM enrichment and Maker activities that are hands-on, fun and educational. 

Each day kids will participate in a variety of workshops to develop their STEM & Maker skills.

Snack and Lunch

During a 3-hour session students will have a break during the session in which they can eat a snack. All day students will also break for lunch from 12pm - 1pm. For these sessions please pack a Nut Free snack & a water/beverage for the student.

Outside Time

We will be taking breaks outside in the grass common areas to play games and burn off some energy.  We will travel outside in our groups (10 children or less) with 1 instructor and 1 mentor. Games will include tether ball, corn hole, outside checkers and more.

The Maker Mill - Nut Free Facility

Due to the prevalence of nut, tree-nut and peanut allergies, we have chosen to be a Nut Free Facility. ALL FOOD, snacks, lunches and beverages should be completely free of nuts. Failure to provide nut free food may result in the child being moved to a separate area while eating and notification of the parent/guardian.
