Flex your maker muscle in a workshop built for invention. Practice the techniques of top innovators, including rapid prototyping and daily brainstorms. Explore construction techniques and the physics of levers and pulleys as you build weight-bearing cardboard chairs and intricate Rube Goldberg machines. Learn the basics of circuitry and gear ratios to engineer an electric car. Reflect on a problem in the world around you, then devise an invention to solve it. Present your original prototype at an end-of-session open house.
