This President’s Day we ran our biggest Day Off Day Camp yet, with 29 students joining us to build some really awesome things! We had a very diverse age group, from 6 to 12, and everyone got involved. There were big things and small things, stationary things and moving things, analog things and digital things, functional things and artful things — our day campers covered the gamut with their imagination, design, and construction skills.
We had a series of races with hand-built custom car. The kids might have a different opinion, but everyone wins in our book!
Yep, that’s a catapult. If you look closely, you can see their projectile flying towards the cameraman.
Alexander wanted a bench customized to his specifications; a few hours and a lot of screws later, he’s got one! Boy is he proud to take it home.
A day in the shop wouldn’t be complete without clean-up, and everyone got involved. Who said sweeping can’t be fun?
Everyone here at Bit Space had a fantastic time that day, and we hope to have more full days like this one! From the entire Bit Space family, a huge THANK YOU! to our lovely parents, kids, and community. Our next day camps are over the CPS Spring Break — we’re going to host two week-long courses, and also have one-day day camps. See you there!
