BitSpace Summer Maker Camp

WHERE IDEAS BECOME REALITY

Calling all creative makers — the camp you’ve been waiting for is here! A week-long immersion into design-thinking, collaborating, and making that will spark your curiosity and flex your creative muscles like never before. With the support of expert guides (real-life architects, designers, and makers) you will discover how to turn your unique idea into a reality using the newest tools and technology available. Yes! That means virtual reality, 3D printing, laser cutting, and so much more. By the end of the week you’ll have turned your vision into a tangible product, but you’ll also have developed critical thinking, learned a ton of new skills, and explored inquiry-based design thinking on a level that will set you up for a future you’ll be ready for.
