Event description

Description

A special 3 Day Series for some girl power time. Our theme will be crafting and coding artful gadgets. Each day from 1PM - 4:30PM, The Makery will be offering a different creative project workshop. The school year will be done, come out and make!

For Ages 10-13.

Please Bring Your Own Laptop

Thursday June 28th: DIY TECHNOLOGY: From bat signal headbands to flashlight barrettes or massaging scarves, we’ll pose questions around the future of fashion accessories and prosthetics while challenging you to explore making with new materials. We’ll introduce the basics of circuit design and techniques in crafting with soft circuits. You’ll try your own hand at sewing with conductive thread to create simple circuits that drive lights or motors to enliven your own accessory project. Explore and play with new materials and tools at our makerspace, and understand why engineering circuits matters in our increasingly electronic world. Walk home with what you make!

Friday June 29th: PROGRAMMING WEARABLES: Discover the animating world of microcontrollers and e-textiles with an introduction to a weareable microcontroller Arduino. Our theme of the day will be considering the contexts of invention. Get creative and hands-on with programming soft circuits you can wear. This workshop includes a kit of materials: sensors, microcontroller, and T-shirt (if you have a item of clothing you’d prefer to transform, bring it in and we’ll coach you in how to re-invent it). Walk home what you make.

Saturday June 30th: 3D MODELING & PRINTING JEWELRY: Our theme of the day will be prototyping for hands. You will be challenged to design and 3D print an accessory that fits your finger. This accessory could be purely decorative or functional. We can even explore how it might embed electronics or be an enclosure (hidden compartment). Take what you make home with you.



STEAM = science, technology, engineering, art & math
*After exposure to key concepts, students will have free exploration time to experiment with their own ideas supported by technical mentoring from our workshop leaders. This program class sizes will be less than 8 students, enabling meaningful 1:1 coaching and self-paced discoveries.
