Makerspace Camp – Entering Grades 4-7

At our Makerspace Camp, campers are exposed to hands-on problem solving through a great range of tools, machines, technology, possibilities, and instructor encouragement.  They gain familiarity with maker concepts such as programming, robotics, engineering, multimedia, and design.  Campers who already have knowledge in these areas can advance to the next level by developing unique solutions to open-ended challenges.

Each camper will work through the processes of design and production under the guidance of experienced instructors in the Ciongoli Center for Innovation.  By gaining exposure to cornerstone principles in 21st century craftsmanship, campers can fluidly move from creating a digital prototype to designing a project using 3D printers, laser cutters, and an array of tools and materials.  Campers are encouraged to utilize their critical thinking skills, while also collaborating on projects with other campers who have similar interests.  By working together, campers can answer important questions, solve problems, or invent something entirely new.

Features of Makerspace Camp include:

  • State-of-the art facility and equipment
  • Instruction in cutting-edge technology and craftsmanship by experienced teachers
  • Student-centered, teacher-supported approach that promotes an interactive exchange of ideas
  • A daily schedule that includes outdoor time and free swim
