Who should attend:
- Youth Grades 4-8 & Family
The MakerPlace allows kids and families to bring ideas and inventions to life. We’ll help you find inspiration, learn to use cool tools like laser cutters and 3D printers, figure out how to turn a handful of electronics and wires into programmable machines, and much more. We can make anything from robotic pets, to jewelry that senses your heartbeat, to marshmallow shooters, whatever you can dream up! Why do-it-yourself? We can do it better together No two workshops are alike-we challenge you to design something new each workshop. Participants are encouraged to bring a hack-able object from home for a one of a kind creation.
These workshops are geared toward youth in the 4th to 8th grades. The workshops are open to both youth and the adult of their choice – mom, dad, big sister/brother, or neighbor.
Each youth that attends the workshop will be exposed to many different media: textiles, wood working, electrical circuitry, joining, cutting, laser cutting, soldering, programming, 3-D plotting, and much more! They’ll learn how these different media can be combined to create one-of-a-kind projects.
Adults are there to work alongside the youth, not to be full participants in the workshop. They will not be making their own projects, but assisting the youth and being exposed to the maker movement and the many different media.
The cost to attend the workshop is $18.00 per youth, with one adult attending with them for free. Extra adults are $5.00 each. No youth may be dropped off at this workshop. However, one adult may accompany up to 3 youth.
