Maker Camps at RCBI

The Robert C. Byrd Institute will offer Maker Camps in June and July at RCBI. Campers will have firsthand experience 3D design, 3D printing, assembly, coding, soldering, basic electronics, electromagnetism and hydraulics. Another important and fun aspect for the campers includes exploring careers in manufacturing and technology as they tour a local business, startup or production facility.

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 right here at RCBI!

The camps are supported by grants from Nuts, Bolts & Thingamajigs, the foundation of the Fabricators & Manufacturers Association.

The camps, which cost $180 each, are open to students in middle and high school.
