2014 Summer Camp: Tech Town: All Charged Up!


Dates: August 4-8 // Time: 9:00 am – 3:30 pm // Ages: 8-12 // Cost: $275/child

Tech Town is a creative “tinker and maker” camp for kids, with acclaimed teaching artists Tyler and Monica Aiello. Imaginations are charged as campers are introduced to engineering and electronics through the lens of art and culture. Projects build throughout the week, introducing more complex ideas by integrating electronics and technology into the students’ mechanical creations.

Kids will get to:

  • conduct hands-on experiments
  • tinker with crank toys, automata, tape circuits and electronic musical instruments
  • investigate energy, electronics and mechanics
  • delve into the history of human invention
  • work together to create sculptures
  • explore the impact of electricity and technology on modern building, design and society

This camp is designed for:

  • Aspiring builders and inventors, always the first to ask how things are made
  • Kids who love science and hands-on discovery
  • Kids (or kids of parents) who care about sustainability
  • Kids ages 8-12 (age limits are flexible; please call with questions)
