The Makers Place

Calling all makers, inventors, tinkerers, artists and entrepreneurs! This new camp gives middle schoolers the chance to engage in a variety of STEM-focused projects through hands-on, materials-rich experiences. You’ll design and assemble your inventions using  systems like micro:bits and Makey Makey and materials like wires, straws, and cardboard. Come and test your creativity and engineering skills! No tool belt is required, but be ready to wield a hacksaw, hammer, glue gun and box cutter (safely, of course).

Who It’s For

This course is for incoming sixth to eighth graders.
