Maker Camps at RCBI

The Robert C. Byrd Institute again will offer its popular series of Maker Camps in June and July 2019. Campers will have firsthand experience in 3D design, 3D printing, assembly, coding, soldering, basic electronics, electromagnetism and hydraulics. Another important and fun aspect campers includes exploring careers in manufacturing and technology as they tour a local business, startup or production facility or interact with a local entrepreneur.

An engaging set of activities is planned that will expose campers to an entrepreneurial mindset and open their eyes to new approaches and possibilities, building experience and confidence. A Maker Fest at the end of the week will give campers an opportunity to share their creations, and all they’ve learned, with you!

Don’t hesitate. Seating is limited, and we hope to see you and your campers during RCBI’s Maker Camps!

Supported by grants from Nuts, Bolts & Thingamajigs – the foundation of the Fabricators & Manufacturers Association – the camps cost $180 each and are open to students in middle and high school.
