  • Camp Description

    Campers will explore, discover and re-imagine their world by designing and making their own unique projects while using their own personal mini Fab Lab. Each morning, campers will be introduced to new fabrication techniques in 3D printing, laser cutting, vinyl cutting, digital embroidery and more. Each afternoon, campers will apply what they learn to make their ideas real.

    Guided by the Wanger Family Fab Lab team, new campers will explore projects from a list of activities that build upon each other. They will have opportunities to imagine, design, fabricate and share their projects with their peers. Returning campers can re-explore these projects in more depth, or create new projects of their own design that are fueled by their imaginations.

    Working both independently and collaboratively, campers will experience a safe and welcoming environment that encourages risk-taking, determination, resilience and curiosity, helping them discover who they are and how they can change the world by developing their creative thinking and problem-solving skills. Fab Lab Camp fosters a child’s creative imagination and allows them to look at themselves, each other and their world in new ways.

Scholarships for camp fees are available for students and their families who demonstrate financial need. Contact us for details.
