The Robert C. Byrd Institute will offer Maker Camps in July and August.
Campers aged 9-16 will gain first-hand experience in 3D design and printing, computer coding, electronics, 2D design, and laser-cutting. Campers will explore careers in manufacturing and technology with a virtual tour of a local manufacturer. Participants will complete a custom designed 3D printed project and – new this year – a custom, illuminated, laser-cut project!
Campers will engage over Zoom, and use robust open-source online platforms to accelerate learning and partake in the fun hands-on challenges that have made our camps so engaging.
Cost is $25, and seats are limited... (they're going to fill up fast!)
