 STEAM SUMMER CAMPS (STEAM)
 
   
STEAM1250: Summer of Creation: Design and Build

In this 5-day camp, participants have the opportunity to explore the entire creative process, from idea to finished product. Students will work directly with professionals in STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics) fields and have the amazing experience of spending a week working in a real-world maker setting.

DAY 01: 2D Design and Graphics
These young innovators will first learn industry-standard 2D design software. They will create digital drawings that will be used to make physical products on the laser cutter and vinyl cutter the next day.

DAY 02: Laser Cutter & Vinyl Cutter
Students will implement their new software skills and use their Adobe Illustrator drawings to laser cut and etch professional-quality creations and vinyl cut custom stickers/t-shirts.

DAY 03: 3D Modeling & 3D Printer
Students will spend the morning learning 3D modeling with Tinkercad by Autodesk, a cloud-based modeling program. Since TechShop has every Autodesk modeling program, it sets the students up to continue to grow into more advanced programs. Then they will print their creations on the Makerbot 3D printer.

DAYS 04-05: Final Project
Instructors will lead students through the design process as they go from idea to reality using the amazing CNC machinery at TechShop.

Participants who successfully pass this course are certified to use the Universal laser cutters, Makerbot Replicator 2 3D printers, and the CNC vinyl cutter at TechShop.

STEAM500: Entrepreneurship and Lean Startup

At TechShop, students develop a product/system using their minds and industry-standard software and machines. Why not take it a step further and learn how to quickly produce, pitch, market, and sell those creations?

In this 5-day camp, we will use the Stanford Lean Startup curriculum and the expertise of several entrepreneurs, marketers, and designers to help youth learn how to make it in the business world.

This is for students who halve already taken at least one camp at TechShop.

This week-long summer camp is for makers ages 11–17, Monday through Friday, from 9:30AM–3:30PM. Lunch will be from 11:30PM-12:00PM; don't forget to pack a lunch or bring lunch money! There are several restaurants near by to purchase food.
