Camp Fab Lab II is a team-based camp organized around design challenges. Each day will begin with a review of a Fab Lab tool or software and then participants will work in teams to build prototypes of designs that solve a problem or meet a challenge (example challenges: design a device that helps you get out of bed in the morning, design a playground for a human-sized hamster). The final day of camp will end with a showcase of participant designs. Participants in this camp should have attended Camp Fab Lab before enrolling in Camp Fab Lab II and should expect to both work in teams and invent their own projects.
Learning Process and Outcomes
Design thinking, group problem solving, rapid prototyping, iterative design
Because of the team nature of this camp, there may not be individual take home projects but each team will have plenty of pictures to show off and the best inventions will be left on display at the lab!
