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.
Life Science Experience(K-3rd): Enter the fun world of Life science and learning about the world around us. The children will be introduced to The Scientific Method while conducting hands on experiments to learn about the life cycle of the butterfly, dissecting Owl pellets, exploring DNA in Minecraft, observing plants, Etc. Skills learned in this workshop are observing, predicting, measuring, and comparing. Some projects are throughout the week but a new concept will be introduced each day so feel free to join anytime.
Circuits & “Tear-It-Down” (3rd-6th): Let’s take things apart and see what’s inside during this week-long Hackathon. We invite kids to explore how things are made, identify components that make things work by tearing them apart. We'll put those old or broken electronics and toys to good use as we explore the insides and outsides to create something new. We make no guarantees what you make will work...but it will be fun trying!!! Learn and explore different types of circuits. Using Snap Circuits, squishy circuits, little bits and more we will go from learning how a circuit works to creating your own. If you have an old component or toys at home, bring them in and we will help take it apart. We start a new project every day so feel free to jump in any day of the week.
Forensics, Lock Picking & Science Experience (4th-8th): Do you love mysteries? Have you ever wanted to learn the tips and tricks to solving a crime? Finger printing, Chromatography experiments, hair analysis and analyzing a crime scene. Then jump on-board this is the class for you. We will also be concentrating on science and conducting many experiments during the week. Tuesday & Thursday morning we will be working on the art of lock picking. We start a new project every day so feel free to jump in any day of the week.
