Fabrication Camp

About Fabrication Camp

We will introduce your children to the world of digital fabrication, where they can produce in the real world whatever they can imagine and create on a computer! We will work with powerful 2D and 3D design software that is appropriate for kids, but still able to make complex objects. 

This course is intended for children ages 11 to 14.

A Few Details

Fabrication Camp Content

As your children learn digital design tools we will teach your child to produce their designs on a variety of digital fabrication machines, including 3D printers, paper plotters / cutters, and a CNC machine. Participants will take home all of their creations!

Skills Taught/Practiced

  • Digital design software
  • Hand tool use
  • 3D printing
  • CNC machine operation
  • Teamwork & collaboration
  • Patience!

 

Why Fabrication Camp?

Your children love to make things. Think about how many times they took the box of a gift and played with it just as much as the gift itself. They do this because they don't see a box, they see possibility! Fabriaction Camp is about creating possibility and sharing it with others!

Prerequisites

There are no prerequisites for our Fabrication Camp. We do encourage campers to share ideas and make team-based decisions about how and what they make. Campers should be prepared to work well with others.

This camp is designed for children aged 11-14.

What's Next?

After taking our Fabrication course we try to point children in the direction of learning more creative content such as our Stop Motion Animation camp, mBot Robotics camp, or Video Game Programming camp. Many of those same courses are offered afterschool and on weekends through our sister company Young Makers Lab.
