Ages 7-13

Engine’s Makers Camp invites curious, aspiring young artists, designers, engineers, and scientists ages 7-13 to think, explore, and create outside the box. Makers Camp emphasizes the act of hands-on experimentation; thinking, tinkering, learning how and why things work through a series of fun and creative projects that promote innovation and creativity. Engine’s S.T.E.A.M. initiative combines science, technology, engineering, art, and math into one balanced week of activities to inspire a well-rounded maker. Camp will be instructed by Amanda Hawkins, a 2014 graduate of Montserrat College of Art.
