This hands-on workshop is all about creating and making cool things with a wide range of digital and analogue tools. Our young makers will be working with a variety of mediums, such as printing their creations on a 3D printer using Autodesk software (with a possibility of taking a field trip to the Autodesk company); making inanimate objects have personality with MakeyMakey; using everyday materials to make a marshmallow shooting machine; building a chain reaction with 1000 tongue depressors or sewing your own working circuit using conductive thread. Each maker will get a chance to explore and develop their own creativity while having fun with others. Be prepared to show your creative side, and start tinkering with everyday household supplies to make some cool projects. A laptop is strongly recommended for this course to work with a variety of software.
Ages: Students entering 7th, 8th, and 9th grades in the fall of 2017
