Maker Mania Camp

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
