The deadline to apply is March 31, 2023 with preference given to historically underserved and underrepresented students in STEM. Applicants will be notified by April 14th.
The summer 2023 camp will focus on two areas: game development using the Python programming language and creating personalized physical projects using engineering equipment in our ideation and project spaces. No experience needed! Campers will be learning the Python programming language through the development of simple games. Campers will be introduced to shop fundamentals as they design and build small wooden and metal projects they can take home. Campers will also perform product archeology by disassembling every-day objects, learning about their components, and creating new contraptions.
