For curious and creative boys and girls ages 4-8, this summer camp is designed to support young inventor creativity, while empowering children to design technology and understand how it works.
The collaborative programs include hands-on, object-based projects, to encourage optimum physical engagement. Children will explore technology from concept to product without screens! Camper will build problem solving skills, expand creative thinking, and practice working together, through activities that will get them moving, building, and thinking!
Our camp themes include robotics, circuits, interfacing, science experiments, engineering and building indoors and outdoors. We will be making wearable soft circuits, original art, large scale robots and mechanical systems as well as hacking electronics. Activities will also include measuring our brainwaves, and building a solar car that they can take home! Kids interested in participating across multiple session are welcome. New projects will be introduced each week.
