Summer Design|Tinker|Explore Camp Weekly

Take a week of summer (or more) and make it SPECIAL for your younger elementary aged student. In our Design|Tinker|Explore Camp, we use all sorts of hands-on learning activities to explore your child’s natural curiosity and love of MAKING things. There will be take home projects and activities done just at camp. There will be technology and non-technology. There will be coding and engineering and DIY projects and lots of science as well as learning about the intersection of art and science.  Learn more about each week’s activities at this link.  Register below for all weeks.  A scholarship request form is below.
