Event Details

Is your child a tinkerer? An inventor? A hands-on, open-it-up-and-see-how-it-works type of kid? Then you've come to the right place!

 

 

Children need time to solve hard problems -- be it wiring LEDs to motorized cardboard, fashioning a self-powered boat, or building a simple robot that draws pictures. 

A makerspace is an environment without interruptions. At Maker Krewe, there are plenty of tools and materials, as well as adult supervision and expertise, but the only deadlines are those that come naturally when a child is truly motivated to complete a project.

 

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

WHAT: Maker Krewe is a gathering of young, creative makers who desire the time, tools and expertise necessary to solve meaningful hard problems.

 

WHY: Because kids are natural born tinkerers and problem solvers, but rarely have the time they need to try and fail repeatedly until finally solving a problem or completing a meaningful project.

 

WHERE: Parish Hall at St. Andrew's Episcopal School -- 8017 Zimpel Street

 

WHEN: Friday, January 3rd, 9am-1pm. The more time your child has to work the better, but you are welcome to drop off and pick up whenever is most convenient for you.

 

WHO: Children currently in 3rd grade or older.

Oskie Creech, the organizer, will be joined by at least one other adult with plenty of experience working with kids.


FOOD / DRINK: Please send a snack or lunch with your child. Bottled water will be provided.

 

MATERIALS: We will provide all the materials and tools your child needs to dive right in and start making. You are welcome to send additional materials, particularly if there is a specific project your child is interested in working on. We are always looking for used electronics to disassemble and re-purpose!

 

Because space is limited, it is necessary to register prior to the event.

Organizer

Oskie Creech

Oskie has over thirteen years of classroom teaching experience and currently serves as the head of the new Innovation Lab at Isidore Newman School.

In 2009, Oskie created Newman Summer Day Camp based on the belief that children should be empowered to make choices about how their time is spent.

Maker Krewe is not only about choices, but about time. Oskie agrees with the many experts who say that what children need today is time to work through meaningful hard problems. He hopes Maker Krewe will provide the time, tools, expertise and community support kids need to grow as creative problem solvers.
