Getting Ready for #MakerCamp at @FabLabEP <3

Poster from Maker Summer Camp 2014 | Fab Lab El Paso.

Yikes! So super excited about Maker Summer Camp 2014; wish we could bring our friends. Here’s the description for next week’s session…

WEEK 2
Art and Design (July 14th-18th)

When we make something, we’re infusing it with a little bit of ourselves, whether it’s a robot or a painting, and this week campers get to try their hands at merging form and function to create things that are beautiful as well as useful. People say it’s important to create art for art’s sake; at Maker Camp we make for making’s sake.

Field Trip Friday to Cartoon Network Studios at 11am Pacific time on July 18th

Have you or your kids attended a Google #MakerCamp? What should we expect?
