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

Astronomy Experience (K-3rd):  Let’s get learning while having fun in this exciting new workshop.  Kids will learn about planets, moons, comets, asteroids and stars in this fun interactive workshop.  We will be paper macheting plants and painting them as we talk about interesting facts.  We will also be drawing out our solar system, creating our solar system in Minecraft and working on various experiments that deal with light and shadows to help us understand illumination and shadow length.  Don’t worry we will also have some fun with Lego.  Jump in any day morning or afternoon, we will start a new project or learn about a new planet every session.

Minecrafting Experience (3rd-6th): From building to Mods, we will explore Minecraft like never before. If you have not played Minecraft on a PC we will get you up to speed, and if you are a seasoned player we can work on new skills. The week will include white boarding a new Minecraft World that you will build on our servers. We will also come up with a new Minecraft character, sketch the character and then mold the character using clay.  We don’t want you sitting at a computer all day so we will be taking breaks to play chess & kahoot.it to learn new strategies and about computer science.
