STEAM1249: Summer of Creation: Design and Build

Calling all young innovators! Welcome to your summer of creation! Through this 5-day workshop students have the opportunity to explore creation from invention to fabrication. By working directly with professionals in the STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics) field students have the opportunity to work in a real-world maker-setting. Design and Build Camp introduces young innovators on day 1 to the world of Computer Aided Design and Computer Numerically Controlled machinery. By the end of day 1 students will learn the basics of digital design and programming. On day 2 students dive into the world of laser cutting and 3D printing. Day 3 begins the “design” process as students create their own projects and tailor an educational track specific to them. Whether students are interested in vinyl decals or robotics we can help them achieve their goals. Camp will culminate on Friday afternoon with a showcase of their inventions and light refreshments. Friends and family are welcome to join us! Once you have successfully passed this course, you will be certified to use the Universal LaserCutters Makerbot Replicator 2 3D printers at TechShop DCA.
