I'm a Maker Summer Camp - Woodturning

$225Purchase required to enroll


During the “I’m A Maker!” Bootcamp, youths between the ages of 11 and 14 will receive training on various shop equipment and power tools with an emphasis on their safe and responsible operation. Once trained, the young Makers will create two spinning tops, one carved by hand on a wood lathe and another utilizing state-of- the-art 3D modeling and 3D printing technology. The camp will include competitions pitting the Makers’ spinning tops against one another to find out which ones spin the longest. The Makers will learn the principals of Design Thinking – a methodology of finding solutions to complex problems – to refine and improve the designs of their tops, and make them spin longer. No prior technical knowledge or power tool experience is required. Each camper will take home a free “I’M A MAKER” T-shirt, the spinning tops they create, as well as newly acquired technical skills in wood working, power tools, 3D design, and 3D printing.
Cancellation policy -Refund request must be made 14 days prior to the start of the camp. No refunds will be given within 14 days of the start of the camp.
