Get creative this summer at MOST's two maker camps
Summer is a time for exploration, and the MOST's two 2015 summer camps will offer plenty of that. This year's theme is Tinker, Thinker, Science Maker, and campers will be able to get their brains thinking and their hands tinkering as they make and remake their creations. Campers will have plenty of time to explore the MOST's exhibits, too.
Campers will investigate the process of 3D printing, design a marble machine, explore electrical circuits, cushion eggs for a drop, and interact with MaKey MaKey. The device is an invention kit that encourages people to find creative ways to interact with their computers with everyday objects as a replacement for a keyboards and mouse. MaKey MaKey turns ordinary items like bananas into a piano keyboard, Play-Doh containers into a set of drums. And simple pencil drawings can become controls for Pac-Man.
Camps run 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Monday through Friday. Parents can drop off their children between 8:30 and 9 a.m. A healthy mid-morning snack is included, but campers must bring their lunch.
Campers can register for one of two sessions:
Camps are limited to 22 children, and registration is first come, first served. But register early; camps are expected to sell out!
