Junior STAR Offerings

Note: Campers must be at least 4 years old to attend JR STAR Camp.

Do you like to make things? Do you like a challenge?
Our Maker Lab session will get you "design" thinking, planning, and making prototypes! Share your ideas with other makers and present your models with other campers. Makers will work through a new challenge each week such as: Tiny House, Musical Instrument, Marble Run, Robot with moving parts, Bridge Span, and Pirate Ship!
This is a brain boosting lab for campers who love working with OSMO tools! Campers will be asked to work together using shared iPads to problem solve with OSMO base stations and hands-on manipulatives. Campers will be introduced to and have supported work time to explore OSMO words, Tangrams, Numbers, Newton, and Coding!
