MIDDLE SCHOOL BOTCAMP (entering grades 6, 7 and 8 in Fall 2013)
The Light Lab is a 1-week intensive workshop that explores building machines and systems that react to light—a light triggered alarm, a device that plays music, a flashing light box, a light for dark places. The workshop provides an introduction to analog circuits and students will learn to solder, read and create schematics, wire electonic components, create 3D models, print 3D objects and document their creative projects.
The Sound Lab is a 1-week intensive workshop that gives students a hands-on experience designing and creating their very own sound machines—an Atari Punk Console, a toy organ, a sound amplifier, and a circuit that bends sound waves. Students develop analog circuits, learn to solder, read and create schematics, wire electronc compnenets, create 3D models, print 3D objects and document their creative projects.
The Motion Lab is a 1-week intensive where students design and 3D print characters for a stop motion animation. The course will introduce students to 3D design, 3D scanning, 3D printing, and stop motion animation and storytelling.

Creativity in Engineering, Science, and Technology 3D (CrEST 3D)
CrEST 3D is an innovative two-week workshop for high school
students applying physical computing, mechanical systems,
electronics and rapid prototyping to design and build interactive 1devices of their own creation. Participants will use 3D printers and microcontrollers, learn about computer coding and 3D rendering software, and acquire skills in building circuits and using specialized tools.
Creative Lab 1 M-F, July 8 - July 19th (10 spots)
Creative Lab 2 - SOLD OUT!
Creative Lab 3 - M-F, August 5 - August 16th (10 spots)
