Maker Space Classes for Grades 3 – 8
Growing with STEM – by Design!
Our Maker Space classes build the critical thinking and creativity of kids in grades 3 – 8. Join a six-week series of 90-minute classes led by our professional educator. Students will love the interactive lessons that allow them to use tools and technology they can’t do in school.
Each class is $15 per student. Sign up for all six and receive one free! Space is limited to 12 students. All students are welcome to stay and play in our exhibit hall with a parent for free after class!
Thursdays @ 4pm,
*Beginning April 22nd* Junk Drawer Inventor: Students in this class will use up-cycled household and common objects to solve a variety of engineering challenges. Creativity and critical thinking will be key as students make cardboard creations, build cities and bridges, take apart and reimagine toys, build hydraulic lifts and more! Each 90-minute class is designed to make students look differently at the world around them, observing common objects and imagining new purposes for them.
Fridays @ 2pm
*Beginning April 23rd* Circuit Lab: In each 90-minute class 3rd – 8th grade students will learn how electricity flows in a circuit by making them from different materials such as paper, conductive ink, dough, and more. They’ll learn the relationship between energy and magnetism, and how electricity can be converted to kinetic energy (motion).
Saturday Morning Maker Camp @ 10:30am
*Beginning April 24th* Tinkercad Design Camp: In this Maker Camp, students will learn 3D Printing and beginner CAD design and how those skills can be applied in the real world. Each week students will be presented with a design prompt and will work collaboratively to make unique prototypes. Projects include personalized keychains, spaceships, game pieces, action figures, and more. Lessons are aligned with 21st Century Skills and students will take home each item they make.
Masks are required in our facility. All COVID-19 safety policies apply.
