Maker Camp is a four-day camp for students age 10-14. Our mission is to get students engaged in hands-on, creative collaboration. Each year, we issue a challenge for campers to build something out of found materials (cardboard, bottle caps, etc.), a Raspberry Pi computer, and small 3D-printed parts. Then, we practice design, 3D printing, coding, collaboration, and presentation skills. Finally, campers form teams, ideate, build, and present their design in front of an audience.

Full and partial fee waivers are available and may be requested upon registration. You are encouraged to use them should you have the need. Financial concerns should not prevent anyone from registering.
