A week of invention and creation. We’ll have our electronics
workbench, art table, a bunch of hand-tools, building supplies, scrap
materials, air pumps, hot glue, duct tape, etc. Things will be taken
apart and build. They may be attached to wheels and ridden. LEDs will
be added to everything that needs to glow or blink. Everyone will be
asked if they want to learn to solder. There could very well be giant
sculptures made of corrugated cardboard. You never know!

If you are a hacker/tinkerer/maker/technologist/artist/whatever, and
you would be interested in working with kids on the thing(s) that you
do, please get in contact with us, even, or especially, if you’re
never done any teaching in the past or don’t have a lot of love for
traditional teaching/learning environments.
