Camp Contraption: Coming Summer of 2017!

Proto is excited to release it’s biggest workshop yet: Camp Contraption! This will keep us busy from mid June to late August, and has programs for kids of all ages. From 3D printing and laser cutting to tinkering with scrap materials, this camp has something for everyone.

There are two aspects of this camp: Camp Contraption, which is for grades 5-9, and Lil ‘Traptions, for grades 2-5. Here’s a glimpse into some of what we have to offer for Camp Contraption:

  • Learn the power of a CNC Router
    • CNC Routers are the workhorse of digital fabrication. Learn to create 2D and 3D objects from flat materials using free and easy-to-learn software. Get an introduction to free 2D software to build on.
  • Kinetic Contraptions
    • In Kinetic Contraptions, you will build up to 5 contraptions that move with the help of water, cable, paddles or sun light. Dive into basic electronics, hydraulics, mechanics and more in this hands-on intro to awesome!
  • And much more! Check out our full list of workshop descriptions for both Camp Contraption and Lil ‘Traptions here.

You can find our schedules for Camp Contraption and Lil ‘Traptions, as well as our electronic and paper sign-up sheets, on the Camp Contraption page.

We hope to see you there! Sign up by May 8, 2017 to get in on the fun!
