Maker Mania Camp

June 24, 2016

Maker Mania STEAM Camp was a success!

 

Here are some of the highlights of our week:

 

- Making geodesic domes out of candy and toothpicks, straws and pipecleaners, spaghetti and marshmallows and newspaper 

 

- Constructing Solar Power Cars then modifying the bodies, and creating garages, gas stations, and race tracks for them

 

- Tie Dying bandanas 

 

- Having independent maker time to invent, construct, and tinker!

 

- Programming a game with Scratch and using a Makey Makey (a microcontroller) to create non-traditional controllers for our games

 

- Slinky Races (or an attempt at least! Our stairs are too wide!)

 

- Outdoor games like sharks and minnows, gagaball, and squirrels and trees

 

- Morning brainteaser challenges

 

- Engineering a hammock that will hold as many marbles as possible
