Description

Welcome to Technocopia school vacation programs! All programs take advantage of the resources of the workshops and studios of the Technocopia maker space. As such, in all programs children will learn how to safely use basic hand tools and have age appropriate access and training on our digital fabrication resources such as a 3d printer, laser fabricator and digital vinyl cutter (for making custom stickers of all sizes.) Weekly program fee is $300. All days run 8:30am-4:30pm. Earlier drop off/pick up is available at an $25-50 extra charge. Email lauren.monroe@technocopia for details. Ages 11-15.

Fashion Tech Design, Aug 19th-23rd
Fuse creativity with innovation as you explore the exciting world of wearable technology. In this course you will delve into the four pillars of wearable tech: design, engineering, construction and sustainability – learning conceptual design and how to refine your ideas, you will gain hands-on experience with pattern-drafting and construction, learn how to program with Lilypad Arduinos and Flora microcontrollers and explore the fundamentals of electrical engineering, bio-fabrication and prototyping.

Students learn the actual techniques that are needed to be fashion designers and then use their creativity to solve real world dilemmas, working through iterative design cycles from concept to final prototype. For their capstone project, students create a unique piece of wearable technology that improves the world around us.

Taught by Clare Tattersall, founder of ThunderLily
