Over the school holidays, YuKonstruct’s makerspace was teeming with a dozen pre-teens as we kicked off our March Break Maker Camp!

The 5 day camp consisted of lots of hands on activities and made use of the makerspace’s awesome equipment. The camp participants got to experience laser cutting, bottle rocket building and blast off, 3D design and printing, carpentry, stop animation, robotics and more!

Everyone went home each day with items that they’d built/designed/crafted/created.

 

This animation video is a project the kids created together as a group, our campers developed the story plot, designed the characters and made the sets themselves.

Other highlights included getting robots to navigate through a maze, building towers out of spaghetti and marshmallows, and laser cutting a variety of animals.

“Please bring a camp in the summer please I’m begging you please”

“I think you guys nailed it. Robotics, stop animation, rockets, 3D printing, using the laser cutter… don’t think it gets better than that!”
