New Year’s Eve Camp | 2nd – 4th Grade
Countdown to 2019 with KID! Celebrate the end of the year in this New Year’s themed maker camp. Work collaboratively to build a New Year’s Eve ball drop, create a stop-motion countdown video, wire together light-up 2019 glasses, and make noisemakers to use when the clock strikes midnight.
Video Game Makers | 5th – 7th Grade
Let the gaming begin! Design and program your own video game using Scratch coding, then create a custom game controller using Makey-Makey – an electronic invention kit. (Registered campers have the option to purchase a Makey-Makey kit at a reduced rate. The game controller will not work without Makey-Makey, but the video game can still be played using a computer keyboard.)
