The MakerPlace Junior Workshops

Invite A Friend

Date & Time

6:00 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.

Sponsored by: The MakerPlace

Who should attend:
  • Girl Scout Juniors & Family

The MakerPlace allows kids and families to bring ideas and inventions to life. At this workshop, we'll make animals or other objects out of typical craft supplies - and then we'll add a vibrating motor and power supply to make them MOVE!  We'll also add LEDs to make them shine! 

These workshops are geared toward Girl Scout Juniors.  The workshops are open to both youth and the adult of their choice – mom, dad, big sister/brother, or neighbor.  Troops are welcome and encouraged to attend!

Workshop Information:

Each youth that attends the workshop will be exposed to many different media:  textiles, wood working, electrical circuitry, joining, cutting, soldering, 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 $12.00 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.
