Class Experience

Carnivals are all about having fun and what’s more fun than making your own DIY carnival?! In this week-long camp, makers will use cardboard, wood scraps, and up-cycled materials to create all sorts of carnival-inspired crafts. Projects include cardboard mini-games (Plinko, skeeball, pinball, etc), a mini-carnival swing ride or Ferris wheel, and moving character puppets like a trapeze artist or a strong man. We’ll end the week by creating a collaborative carnival with DIY games and Prizes. Choose your own maker adventure with more miniatures and prizes In this super fun DIY camp, makers will flex their creative muscles while learning all about engineering, simple machines, design, and collaboration. This is creative STEAM at its best.
