Description

OUR MAKERS CAMPS ARE CREATIVE FUN

Engine’s Makers Camp invites curious, aspiring young artists, designers, engineers, and scientists ages 8+ to think, explore, and create outside the box. Our maker education emphasizes the act of hands-on experimentation; thinking, tinkering, learning how and why things work through a series of fun and creative projects that promote innovation and creativity. Engine’s S.T.E.A.M. initiative combines science, technology, engineering, art, and math into one balanced week of activities to inspire a well-rounded maker.

Participants will engage in the creative processes to connect STEAM education to community involvement. During the camp, we will use science and engineering activities to build knowledge and further understanding of spatial, structural and environmental elements inherent in downtown Biddeford. Participants will design meaningful prototypes and artifacts that communicate ideas formulated on different excursions throughout downtown and neighboring areas.


INSTRUCTOR Erinn Conn
