MAKE Magazine Introduces Maker Camp 2013
Download to my calendar
In 2012, MAKE in partnership with Google+ launched a successful, six-week online summer camp for teens aged 13-17 which featured how-to instructions to complete 30 projects in 30 days. Guest (and celebrity) camp counselors provided guidance throughout the day to ensure the successful completion of the projects. Each of the days was themed to reflect the focus of that day’s camp: Maker Monday, Tinkering Tuesday, Weird Science Wednesday and Theoretical Thursday. Fridays were dedicated field trip days, with virtual visits to The Smithsonian, CERN, National Geographic, and Disney.
A number of libraries across the country participated in the inaugural program. Four librarians from these libraries will participate in a panel discussion about their experience integrating Maker Camp into their summer programs, and will share recommendations for using the STEM-based programming to engage this teen target and get them back into the library.
