Description

You may have played the classic game Mousetrap, but how would you like to build your own crazy contraptions? Rube Goldberg is famous for creating the original wacky drawings that have inspired generations to design their own real-life mad machines.

Each day we’ll introduce new techniques and concepts as we learn to make even more amazing machines and build on our designs each day. Students will spend approximately 30-60 minutes per day interacting online with the instructor and other campers and another 1-3 hours each day constructing and testing their machines. This camp is recommended for students in grades 3-6, but it’s accessible to both older and younger students using included support material.
