STEAM Saturday - 3, 2, 1 Blast Off!

Kids will have a BLAST as they combine physics and engineering to explore the science behind rocketry. This STEAM Saturday session will bring kids’ creativity to life while they design rockets to shoot to the Moon! Kids will be challenged to learn about the aerodynamics of flight and engage in various activities that combine fabrication with the Fab Lab's Design Process. Kids will create their very own rocket to bring home! This session is sure to be out of this world!

Superhero Robots - Fab Lab Summer Camp Week 1

During Superhero Robot week, Fab Lab campers will transform their robots into their own creative superhero character and learn to ‘code’ (give their robot directions) so they have superhero abilities. Superhero robots use special skills to fly, climb, jump, shapeshift, and have other superpowers. Campers will use a wide variety of robots (depending on their age), such as Ozobots, Dash, Lego WeDo, Sphero, and Finch to use their imaginations to combine creativity, design, construction, building, and coding! This is guaranteed to be a whole lot of FUN!

Get Creative with STEM+Art -Fab Lab Summer Camp Week 2

Kids will put their imagination and creativity to the test as they learn how to use our very simple, easy to use design software (FabMaker Studio) to create 2D and 3D designs. They will then bring their creations to life using craft cutters, art materials, and basic electronic materials. During this week-long camp, kids will learn how to manipulate ready-made designs and create their own fun designs from scratch as they use their personal artistic style to produce interesting and unique masterpieces! Our instructors will meet all kids where they are with their expertise and comfort level with designing to make sure everyone is successful and is able to bring their creations to life!

Fab Lab Campers will transform into Rock Stars this week as they design, create, and build musical instruments! Campers will explore and investigate how different materials make sound and use their creativity to make their own music! Throughout the week, campers will use all that the Fab Lab offers to create their instruments: they will use simple computer science programs, circuitry, and the laser cutter to build instruments and then perform electronic music live!

Dive into 3D Design - Fab Lab Summer Camp Week 6

Fab Lab Campers will become designers and makers as they learn how to use the best of what the Fab Lab has to offer: software programs that allow them to make things on 3D printers, the laser cutter, paper fabrication machines, and much more! Different aged campers will use different software programs and machines that are age-appropriate, allow for everyone to be personally engaged, and have FUN! All projects will take on a summertime theme this week, as we truly ‘dive into design!’ The week will culminate in a special t-shirt design session, where each camper will design their own t-shirt!

Adventures with Robots - Fab Lab Summer Camp Week 8

Fab Lab Campers will get to know the Fab Lab’s family of robots this week, learning how to give the robots directions to complete fun, exciting challenges! Robotics offers opportunities to introduce kids to complex subjects like programming and engineering; but in a way that’s fun, creative, and interactive. With a few lines of code (directions for the robot), campers will get their robot to move, raise its arms, or even dance! Different ages of campers will use age-appropriate robots such as Ozobot, Sphero, Finch, Dash, Hummingbird, and much more!
