Registration is closed

 July 8 - 12 | 9am - 12pm | Ages 9-15 | Cost $559  

Focus will be on learning the elements of design thinking while also being introduced to 2D and 3D design skills. Design thinking is an integral process in the world of inventing and will help expand camper’s views on problem solving. While things like prototyping and testing will be gone over, topics such empathy centered design and effective brainstorming will also be covered. Campers will learn problem solving skills while also learning basic 3D design skills through 3D printing and basic 2D design skills through laser cutting. By the end of the week campers will have built a Bose Bluetooth speaker that has been customized by them!

An Apple device such as an iPhone or iPad are necessary to build the Bose Speaker. If your camper does not have access to an Apple device please let us know ahead of time so we can prepare.

Campers have the opportunity to bring their own laptop to work on. All of the software we use is open source and can be downloaded for free. If your camper does not have a laptop available we can provided a limited amount. Please contact Gaby Orozco in advance to reserve a lab computer. 

Cancellation fee: $30 if canceled less than 7 days before camp.
