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

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- Please send a sack lunch with your student!

Clelia McCrory (2, 3, 4, 5) elementary and secondary (grant schools) VEX Robotics Competitions is an exciting robotics program that encourages high levels of student engagement in STEM courses. And as more schools add VEX Robotics as a tool to enrich and enhance their STEM courses, there is a need for an integrated process that allows teacher to add robots into their classrooms. Join Clelia McCrory, Bryan Rohling, and national VEX trainers in this four day session to build your own VEX robots, experience effective instructional strategies, and learn how to best embed VEX Robotic tools into your own buildings. As members of the VEX grant program, you’ll also leave with two VEX Robotic kits (buy one, get one free). Training is available for both elementary and secondary levels. Contact Clelia at 620-694-9289 to find out more about this grant funded opportunity! More

Robotics Education Competition Foundation trainers will train teachers on June 20-22 (only elementary or only secondary level) with June 23 being for K-12 robotics teachers. Teachers will learn basic robotics programming that also utilizes math and science applications and make their robots move inside and outside the competition ring! Follow-up math and science tie-ins will happen some during winter follow up learning. Follow up course for Secondary Vex training at no charge 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 win 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 Day 2: participants will be working with hardware, challenges, and extensions to an electronics and circuitry module.

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
