Thinkery Camps Spark Curiosity

Tuesday, March 21, 2017

Thinkery Camps spark curiosity and inspire creative learning through hands-on, inquiry-led exploration and discovery. Each weeklong camp provides an innovative, safe and inspiring environment for campers to expand their problem-solving potential—and have a whole lot of fun. Campers dive deep into age-appropriate STEAM concepts and develop critical thinking skills in a supportive and collaborative environment.

Ready to become a robotics ringmaster or a Renaissance-era apprentice? In 2017, Thinkery will offer six innovative camp themes to challenge and inspire campers in grades Pre-K through 5th grade.

Up, Up and Away
3, 2, 1, blast off! Join us for an exciting week of physical science exploration and experimentation that defies expectation—and gravity! Learn about the forces of flight while investigating the way things fling, float, fly and fall through the air. Prepare for takeoff, aspiring aviators—sky-high adventures await you.

Fantastic Fabrication
Join the maker movement! Spend the week weaving through the science and art of textiles in this hands-on camp for artists, designers and makers. Hone your creative skills as we master modern fabrication techniques and processes. Join us as we find out what makes fabrication so fantastic—and so fun!

Illuminating Inventions: Design and Explore with the Innovators

Embark on an ambitious journey back in time as you become an apprentice to famous inventors from the Renaissance! Turn inspired ideas into original inventions as we draw from the work of Galileo, da Vinci, Michelangelo and many more to discover new ways to change the world

Tinkering with Color and Light

See sparks fly as we make and tinker with cool circuits, bright lights and vibrant colors. Explore how light is used in science, art, medicine, engineering and beyond. Illuminate your imagination and ignite your curiosity by creating your very own magical world of light and color.

Program, Animate and Create

Dream it. Design it. Develop it. This summer, explore exciting new technologies as you think outside the box and let your imagination run wild. That’s right—we’re exploring the creative side of coding! Program, animate and create customized games, crazy inventions and super cool stories. Check it out!

RoboCircus

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls—step right up and join the fun! Become a robotics ringmaster and build wacky, whimsical carnival contraptions. You’ll combine technology, playful tactile learning and basic computer programming to create a truly spectacular show.

Thinkery is expanding its summer camp program to include four locations around Austin, hosting programs at Thinkery, National Instruments (sold out), Valley View Elementary and The Magellan International School.

Spend your summer tinkering, creating and coding at a Thinkery Camp!
