Lorain County Community College’s Campana Center for Ideation and Invention has open registration for summer STEAM Maker camps that explore a “STEAM: STEM plus the arts” curriculum for grades 3 – 12. Camps are infused with creativity, digital fabrication technologies, indoor and outdoor activities to inspire innovative ideas and an inventor’s mindset. At each level, the curriculum evolves to include more advanced concepts, complex projects and creative freedom. These camps include:
Cosmic Art, Flying Machines and Fab Lab Technologies
Explore the creative potential of flight – from Michaelangelo’s “Flying Machines” to NASA’s space rockets – through art, STEM and outdoor activities. Kids can make their own flying machine, space art and more – while using Fab Lab technologies including 3D printing, laser cutters and vinyl cutters.
