WHY ZEN MAKER LAB?
EXPERIENCED AT WHAT WE DO
WE MAKE LEARNING FUN
PROS ON THE FIELD
Trusted by parents and schools since 2013.
Our curriculum is as fun as it is robust.
Quality instructors, experts or COOPS from recognized universities.
In this one-week adventure, we will be designing, building, and competing with our own launchers utilizing the fabrication services of our maker lab! Kids will get to use 3D printers, laser cutters, springs, and elastics to design and build their own launching mechanisms with the guidance of instructors and compete in a number of competition challenges: Tower Storm Targets, How high can you go, How far can you throw, and more.
These aren’t your “run-of-the-mill” catapults out of popsicle sticks and glue – these are catapults designed to last and taken to a whole new level using custom-designed 3D printed parts, custom-designed laser cut wood, and fasteners. Students will learn the ins & outs of Computer-Aided Design (CAD), measurements, potential & kinetic energy, pivots & torque, design thinking, and other Applied Design Skills and Technologies (ADST) related to the BC Curriculum!
This camp is for those young makers interested in building things using 3D printers and laser cutters. Kids will learn fundamental skills and tools to begin working on their own engineering projects at home.
