Kids wood workshop

12 Week Youth Learn and Build S.T.E.M. Program – Level 1

Spring 2018 Classes start January 22, 2018. Scroll down to sign up online now!

The level 1 Beginner Program will introduce kids to a wide selection of hand tools with a variety of materials. The goal of this program is to learn how to use basic hand tools, and help develop the “feel” needed to successfully work with different materials and mechanical systems. This understanding of the hand tools will provide a solid foundation for the level 2 – 4 programs, where increasingly more powerful tools will be introduced along with more complicated projects.

Participants will learn to use the following tools and software: mechanics hand tools, wood working hand tools, laser etcher, 3D printer, vacuum former, silk screener, basic sewing, silicone molding, basic electronics, Corel Draw, and Autodesk Fusion 360 CAD software.
