SUMMER DAY CAMPS 

NEW! THE FACTORY OF THE FUTURE - 3 days

We are offering a new camp for kids aged 11-16 with another kid-friendly story to drive the learning experience. This time we set out to help protectors of a lost world by providing them with the latest technology that enables them to create magic objects and weapons. In the course of the 3 days, kids will gain an insight into the history of industrial production, mass customization and machine-to-machine communication.

 

The camp costs:  35.000 Ft / person 

  

Dates: October 28-30. 2019.

  

Location: Hidegkuti Nándor (MTK) Stadion, Budapest, 1087 Salgótarjáni út 12-14, Makerspace.hu Digitális Közösségi Alkotóműhely 

  

The camp is supported by CraftUnique Kft., the manufacturer of CraftBot 3D printers.

WHY CHOOSE US 

 

DIGITAL ELECTRONICS 

By combining story driven learning with modern technologies we guide participants into the world of science in a playful way. 

ROBOTICS 

Even the inhabitants of the international space station share their living space with robots. We build robots, too, in a safe environment and with the latest kid friendly tools available. 

3D PRINTING 

We create personalized objects, toys and devices and improve skills that will be useful in 20 years both at work and at home.

CITY OF THE FUTURE

The City of the Future is a place where kids would like to live in 30 years. It is a scaled down model (some of the projects might actually be 1:1 scale) of a smart city they shape according to their ideas and imagination. 

This camp is also a social experiment since it highlights current social issues like immigration, sustainability and clean energy. Participants use mixed technologies to create different artifacts (houses, cities, furniture, etc.) which they can imagine to be part of their future.

DIGITAL STORYTELLING - SUPERHEROES

At the center of the workshops are the superheroes created by the kids. Developing their own characters helps kids express themselves in blog posts and inspirational videos. We create and tell stories by programing microcontrollers, sewing comics, printing characters, all participants form their own stories. By the end of the week, kids who are more interested in humanities subjects will have a new appreciation for STEAM studies and kids who are more STEAM centered will be more open to humanities.

GREEN ENGINEERS 

Workshops at this camp deal with sustainable, green developments and experiments. The participants explore wind, water, solar, bio and even fossil fuel energy solutions, build micro power plants complete with controls and energy output monitoring systems. They have to find solutions for humanity to survive on Mars and they can use 3D printers, the laser cutter and microcontrollers to achieve that goal. While they work on their projects, they gain a basic proficiency of these digital devices.
