Story Makers is offered to campers ages 9-13 during Session 2: July 8 – July 19
Camp Season Program Description
Story makers is an engineering inspired creative workshop for young storytellers.
Through construction, design, coding and art projects, students will have a chance to approach storytelling from a “Maker mindset” to uncover new possibilities as authors.
This camp consists of a series of creative writing projects prompted by and created alongside a variety of Maker projects. Campers will craft, design, tinker, engineer and build a variety of physical objects as a way of exploring alternative approaches to their writing.
Projects might include but are not limited to coding animations and games, stop motion animation, cardboard automata, simple wearable circuits and a variety of engineering challenges.
With an emphasis on exploration, skill sharing, observation and creative problem solving students will sketch, measure , cut, glue and make original stories from the materials around them. The session will culminate in an Imaginarium where students will share their work and the creative processes that brought them about.
