Have you ever wanted a robot that would clean your room or take the trash out for you? So have we! Let’s dig into the fun of learning robotics using several different programs and through different activities. We can practice telling them what to do with programming obstacle courses or even figuring out how to take out the trash! Join us if you think you have what it takes! Parents, this is so much more than just radio-controlled cars or video games. These are the skills for the very near future! Camp Leader: Rachel Meenen, teacher Renwick School District For more information, please see -- ESSDACK.org Each session is $75 per camper. Each day runs 9am - 1pm, with a half-hour brown-bag lunch For more information please see: http://www.essdack.org/pages/-summer-makerspace-camp- More

Are you always getting in trouble for taking apart things that are laying around the house? A curious mind is a great thing, as long as we’re doing something great with it! Let’s learn how to perform an autopsy...on everyday electronics gadgets! And then we can take all those parts to build one awesome new Frankenstein- style thing! Parents, in this camp, we’ll learn to safely take various household gadgets apart, learn what each component is/does, and reconstruct them to form new inventions. Camp Leader: Paul Carver, teacher McPherson School District For more information, please see -- ESSDACK.org Each session is $75 per camper. Each day runs 9am - 2pm, with a half-hour brown-bag lunch For more information please see: http://www.essdack.org/pages/-summer-makerspace-camp- More

So you love to play games? And you also like to build things? We do too! Come to the ESSDACK Makerspace to build! You could make an arcade, a carnival, robots, cars, a spaceship, a maze or MORE! We’ll provide the cardboard and tools and you bring the creativity! Inspired by Caine’s Arcade! Come build something amazing out of cardboard, recycled materials, and imagination! Parents, your kids will be begging for cardboard as they begin building their own toys! Camp Leader: Rachel Meenen, teacher Renwick School District - I am a 3-5 STEM and SS teacher who loves PBL and Maker Education. I am also a licensed STEAMmaker Camp trainer through ESSDACK and have presented at several workshops. My passion is inspiring learners through hands on activities.

Tabletop inventing? YES! We will bring out your inner inventor to design and build items to put on your tabletop OR we can use the tabletop to create our vision of something new! From textiles to technology...circuits to sewing... rockets to robotics, we will spend 3 days launching our innovations into reality! Parents, this workshop will allow your child to use a variety of items from craft supplies, electronics, robotics, hand tools and more to create their envisioned tabletop invention. Camp Leader: Kim Herron, teacher, Inman School District I am a STEAM educator that is passionate about learning, exploring, and creating with kids in a Maker environment in the classroom, after school and summer programs. As a national Siemen’s STEM Fellow, Cosmosphere Camp Director, Makerspace Facilitator, Classroom Teacher and Continuous Learner my passion is to lead others in exploring life today while learning for their tomorrow. http://herronfive.wixsite.com/herronshappenings For more information please see: http://www.essdack.org/pages/-summer-makerspace-camp- More

Code! Coding is creative, fun and easy! From unplugged (offline) activities to programing a robot. We will explore coding through games, apps, websites, and more. Parents, this camp will allow your child to use a variety of online and offline tools/devices to learn how to create programming code. Camp Leader: Carol Nelson, teacher/tech integration specialist, McPherson School District Education Technology Specialist for USD 418 McPherson, who loves all things technology. I love the hands-on creativity and exploration that making brings. Coding adds another level to making - bringing movement, specialization and more.

So you’ve heard about maker education and you’re interested. And maybe you’ve dabbled here and there. But wouldn’t it be awesome to have some time to dive deeply into the various components to learn the hardware, the software, and have time to practice? And how awesome would it be to leave a workshop with lesson connections and resources for later? Then the Maker Camp, Exploded workshop is for you! No, we’re not blowing anything up. In this K12 workshop series, we’re “exploding a makerspace” into smaller parts and examining each of the moving parts piece by piece. By the end, we’ll put the makerspace concept back together and marvel at it’s beauty. This is very much a learning-by-doing experience WITH NO EXPERIENCE NECESSARY! Day 1: In the morning, we’ll be deconstructing and autopsying all sorts of gadgets. We’ll explore how it’s more than just “destructing” and how to help kids think through this highly-engaging deep-thinking creativity activity. Then in the afternoon, we’re looking at 3D design and printing, where we learn how to use a variety of design software and universal practices for how to use a 3D printer. More

Day 2: participants will be working with hardware, challenges, and extensions to an electronics and circuitry module. In the afternoon, we’re going into the future with wearable technology. We’ll look at the making aspects of sewing machines (the coolest power tool in a makerspace) and how to add electronics and gadgets to bring the tech to the wearables. This is always a winner for everyone! Day 3 finds us going all out with cardboard construction, keeping in mind all learners, Littles to Bigs! We’ll build things in the morning and then in the afternoon, we dive deeply into Hummingbird robotics, the ONLY robot hardware that lets you build exactly what you can imagine. Do I have to do all 3 days? You can choose to participate in 1, 2, or all 3 days. Each day builds upon and flows into the next, so the participant that chooses all three days will walk away with a deep understanding of what makes a makerspace tick. However, the participant who can only choose one or two days will still walk away with a valuable list of hardware, software, maker challenges, lesson integration ideas, and further resources for learning and sharing. AND, as a Maker Mindset Bonus, each day will include a component that helps develop a quality maker community in your school. Finally, when you sign up for all 3 days, you’re entered to win a ton of good stuff, including your own MaKey MaKey, a set of circuit stickers, a 3Doodler, a set of Mr. McGroovey’s box rivets, and more! Costs: Members $60/day + $40 materials (lunch on your own) More
