Greetings Earthlings is an incredible summer camp experience for youth ages 7 to 12. Over the course of the week, your child will explore the ideas of life in the universe and learn a wide array of skills and knowledge, all the while having a lot of fun. They will build a working and moving solar system model from scratch, learn the concepts of what makes life so precious on Earth and of course, invent some alien life of their own. From floating magnetic planets, to SCI-FI style lightning bolts; the Greetings Earthling demonstrations will dazzle them and the projects will engage them.
They will also spend time on art activities to make their very own fiction hero’s and games! This will give them the opportunity to use their imaginations, combined with the skills they have learned, to create and express themselves. The group will also make stories and adventures involving their creations, building cooperation and teamwork.
During this camp, your child will learn how to use a number of specialty age appropriate tools. For example, our jigsaws can cut wood and plastic, but cannot cut skin and are safe for child use ages 5+. They will use it in our custom studio where sawdust and air-born particles are sucked into the table itself instead of moving into the air, further improving the environment. Safety is our primary core value and all students will wear eye and ear protection in addition to health requirements (masks, social distancing, etc.).
Your child will also keep all the inventions and creations they make and have the opportunity to customize them from accessories and equipment in our Maker Store. They will receive a complimentary $5 daily allowance (no real cash value) for use at the Maker Store, helping them reinforce the value of money and decision making. The store experience helps ensure that every participant makes something truly unique, whether it is a motor upgrade, a special paint or something fun.
After the week, your child will have a number of new skills, the knowledge to safely use them and the confidence to know they can succeed – and if alien life comes to Earth, they will be ready!
