How it Works

Summer of Makers is structured as half-day, full-day and full-week workshops. 

Full-Day and Full-Week participants can bring a peanut free lunch and snacks. We will be hosting fun lunchtime and afternoon activities.

To create a focused and fun learning experience, summer workshops are limited to a maximum of 10 children per session with 1 instructor and 1 mentor. 

Workshop Descriptions

Engineering Experience (K-3rd) We will work as team and individually to build and engineer multiple projects throughout the week. Some projects include, doodle bots, catapults, cranes, musical instruments, beach house design in Minecraft,  etc. This workshop will involve critical thinking, problem solving, and creativity. Some projects are throughout the week but a new concept will be introduced each day so feel free to join anytime.

Robotics Experience (3rd-6th): This fun workshop is meant to explore a variety of robot concepts including motors, sensors, design and control.  During this full-week workshop participants will white board, design & build an end to end robot from the ground up while also developing skills in coding. Several robotics platforms will be explored including LEGO Mindstorms and Makeblock.  We start a new project every day so feel free to jump in any day of the week.
