2016 – Technology Camps

Spring Break 2017: Makey Makey Inventions (registration now open)

March 13 – 17, 9am – 2pm

This time it’s fun with hardware and software!

First, we’ll create projects using Scratch coding language. Then, we’ll use the popular Makey Makey invention kit to make a custom MIDI controller (for musical creations) and/or a video game controller (for games).

This technology camp is best for girls and boys who are seven through twelve years old.

We will provide all hardware, but campers are welcome to bring their own, too.

Scratch on THE WEB (SOLD OUT)

January 3 – 6, 9am – 2pm

Join us this Winter for a week of analog logic games and guided exploration of MIT’s Scratch program.

Campers will learn to make their own games in this popular language.

Each day will also feature analog deductive reasoning exercises and small “maker” projects in either robotics, art, or electronics.

This STEM camp is best for girls and boys who are seven through twelve years old (please ask me if you have an outlier, though, as I will consider anything for these pilot programs.)

Camp is best for “beginners,” but I will be glad to have campers who are more experienced with technology attend and act as “helpers.”

We will provide devices, but campers are welcome to bring their own, too.

WINTER MAKER CAMP (SOLD OUT)

December 27, 28, 9am – 2pm

It’s “Attend-by-the-Day” so these camps will fit any Winter Break schedule.

Each day will feature multiple “maker” projects in either robotics, art, electronics, or coding – and in most cases, activities will merge many of those tracks.

Campers attending multiple days will construct circuits, learn to solder, and build an original electronic creation to take-home. Attendees are encouraged to bring in old, broken and/or useless electronic componentry or project ideas, too.

This STEM camp is best for girls and boys who are six through twelve years old and who have at least some interest in tinkering (please ask me if you have an outlier, though, as I will consider anything for these pilot programs).

Please note that we are currently located in the West End area of Downtown Dallas (you will not have to park, as we offer curbside pick-up/drop-off every day). Snacks and water are provided; campers should bring a bag lunch.
