STEAM123: Summer of Creation: Design and Build (ages 8-12)

Design and Build Camp introduces young innovators to software and provides a chance to bring creations to life using TechShop’s laser cutters and 3D printers! Designers will start by learning and refining their CAD (computer aided design) skills in 2D and 3D design software before bringing projects to the laser cutters and 3D printers! Projects are defined by the imagination and can be made from a variety of materials, including wood, cardboard, acrylic, and plastic. Projects will be a combination of 2D and 3D and participants will complete a variety of small daily projects in addition to a larger final project.

Students who take and successfully pass this course will be certified to use the laser cutters, 3D printers, and the heat press and vinyl cutters at TechShop.

This week-long summer camp is for makers ages 8-12, Monday through Friday from 9:30AM-3:30PM.

After-camp and before camp extended hours are available to purchase for the week as well. This gives you extra time to make use of what you're learning during camp sessions. Information may be found here.

STEAM126: Summer of Creation: Basic Electronics (ages 8-12)

Dive into the blinking, beeping, programmable world of electronics in this elemental course that spans Monday to Friday of Spring Break weekend. After an introductory primer that lays the groundwork for electricity, circuits, soldering, and using multimeters via mini-project builds, students explore circuit design, learn about microcontrollers, and get started with the Arduino. Students will also learn to work with the laser cutters and desktop CNC mill. The large project build is a fun and flashy LED cube.

This Basic Electronics class is a foundational class that will give your young innovator the tools to excel in more advanced electronics courses.
