New to Maker Camp? Read this!
For those of you who are just getting into #makercamp
, the idea is simple: It’s an online summer camp where we make fun stuff and meet awesome makers every day. You can follow along (and build along) by following this page.
Each morning, we’ll post a new project for campers to build at home. Each afternoon, campers can tune in to a Hangout with expert makers to talk about their creations. On Fridays, we’ll go on a “virtual field trip” to some amazing place, like NASA or Google.
We’ve added a couple new features to Maker Camp this year. You’re invited to join our new Maker Camp +Community, to show off your projects, meet new people, and ask questions. And we’ve also set up a national network of Maker Camp affiliate sites. Check out this map (http://goo.gl/iKoaj
), there might be a library or community center near you that is hosting Maker Camp activities.
We’ll also have a new theme each week. This week is Makers in Motion
, and we’re building boats, gliders, cars, and other fun stuff.
Scroll down to see our first project of the summer: homemade boats. We’ve got step-by-step photo instructions, or you can watch the video of us making boats with some experts at the +Exploratorium
in San Francisco.
