JULY 7th–11th — Be it by land, sea, or air, makers are always moving, using the things we build to propel ourselves forward with the power of our imaginations. Being a part of Maker Camp means you’re on the move as well, and it’s no coincidence we’ll be launching this awesome summer-long journey from the spaceport to the future, the New York Hall of Science.
JULY 14th–18th — When we make something, we infuse it with a little bit of ourselves, whether it’s a robot or a painting. This week, campers merge form and function to create things that are beautiful as well as useful. People say it’s important to create art for art’s sake; at Maker Camp, we make for making’s sake. Supercampers: To make every single Daily Project this week, some things you may need to buy are conductive thread, some LEDs, CR2032 batteries, and conductive metal tape. The rest you probably have on hand, but please check each project page for the tools and materials to be sure you are all stocked up.
JULY 21st–25th — It wouldn’t be summer if we didn't take time to play. This is the week we devote to making fun. We'll build cars to race and invent new games to play with friends we’ve made at Maker Camp. Everyone wins when we make it ourselves! Supercampers: To make every single Daily Project this week, some things you may need to buy are a piezo and 2x AA battery pack (or a MaKey MaKey), sugar cubes or blocks, metal washers, and binder posts.
JULY 28th – AUGUST 1st — Makers push the boundaries—where others see roadblocks, we see opportunities to use our imaginations and the tools around us. If something we need doesn’t exist, we make it. At Maker Camp, it’s up to every one of us to create the future and learning how is the first step. Science & Technology offers many “A-ha!” moments of surprise and delight. Supercampers: To make every single Daily Project this week, some things you may need to buy are an Arduino, a large-ish piece of clear plastic or glass, and a clean brush whose handle you can cut off. The rest you probably have on hand, but please check each project page for the tools and materials to be sure you are all stocked up.
AUGUST 4th–8th — We may not know the name of the song, but if you hum a few bars, we can probably build an instrument to play it on. We learn how at Maker Camp this week. While building a guitar or an amplifier may seem like something only craftspeople can do, you’d be surprised what you can make with a few parts scrounged from around your home. Then it’ll be time to jam with other campers and make some noise! Supercampers: To make every single Daily Project this week, some things you may need to buy are a piezo and an Arduino.
AUGUST 11th–15th — In a world where the line between reality and fantasy is thinner than a carbon nanotube, making our imaginations come true can be a whole lot of fun. In this final week of Maker Camp, we bring a little Hollywood magic to life, learning about special effects and make-up, and exploring the "make" in make believe.
