Call it the Beam Core Curriculum. These are the Making tools and methods that we think Beam Campers should get to know and practice. Some will come in handy on the Project and some will be of use in their own Independent Projects. Over the course of the session, each camper will participate in 9 hours of each Fundamental area.
In the first two weeks of the session, each camper, grouped by age and experience level, will learn and practice workshops in these areas.
Project & Building: construction, carpentry, metal work, project planning
Computing/Electronics: circuitry, physical computing, coding
Design/Prototyping: model-making, design thinking, digital fabrication
Craft: textiles, knitting, sewing, ceramics
