Design and Build Camp introduces young innovators to software and provides a chance to bring creations to life using TechShop’s laser cutters and 3D printers! Designers will start by learning and refining their CAD (computer aided design) skills in 2D and 3D design software before bringing projects to the laser cutters and 3D printers. Projects are defined by the imagination and can be made from a variety of materials, including wood, cardboard, acrylic, and plastic. Projects will be a combination of 2D and 3D and participants will complete a variety of small daily projects in addition to a larger final project.

Students who take and successfully pass this course will be certified to use the laser cutters, Printerbot 3D printers, and the heat press and vinyl cutters at TechShop.

Extended care is available from 8:30AM until 6:00PM for an additional $150 per youth for the week. Please make sure to purchase the Summer of Creation: Maker Session that begins on the same day as your child's camp!
