The camps this summer at Anne Arundel Community College’s Kids in College program offer more opportunities for youths of all ages to see how technology can take ordinary crafts, game and design camps to a new level.
AACC partner FutureMakers brings a mobile makerspace tools to reshape Lego® blocks to create customized components, design toys, print 3D objects, invent machines or build furniture. AACC partner Black Rocket Productions shows campers how to be code-breakers, create game applications (apps) or create inventions from junkyard materials. Youths can try Jedi engineering and take on engineering challenges with AACC partner Play Well TEKnologies or become space explorers in camps in partnership with Spaceflight Institute.
In other new camps, football fans can get some insight on building viable fantasy football teams, younger campers can use animal shapes and sizes to create games, stories and art, and older campers can use digital images to design original buttons.
The perennial favorite camps are back, including babysitting training, bug exploration, messy art, cooking, runway fashions, theater, Legos®, composing your own music, theater and sports jamboree camps.
