“I do not think there is any thrill that can go through the human heart like that felt by the inventor as he sees some creation of the brain unfolding to success.” - Nikola Tesla

Tesla said it best. This course will provide that same thrill for your older, “not so little” maker!

Combining CAD, 3D printing, soldering, small electronics, and DRONES,  this workshop covers the spectrum of STEM technologies. Students will finish off this week of learning by heading over to Mendelsons, a Dayton institution and our favorite place to dig for maker magic, to gather materials for a “Junkyard Wars”-style build off!

Nikola Tesla may have been a little crazy, but we believe there’s plenty of room for crazy on the path to creating something amazing.
