Minecraft Underwater Dome Project

  • Ages: 7-9 yrs old
  • Days: Wednesday & Thursday, 12/26-12/27

Calling all builders, miners, and deep divers - we need your Minecraft expertise. You can help build the Enrichment Center in Minecraft. There is a twist - the entire thing will be underwater, and encased in an enormous glass dome. Band together with your fellow classmates to explore, mine, and complete this impressive, completely impractical, fantastic challenge! Attendees will work together on a Minecraft Survival Server as a single group to plan out their design, find a suitable build location, collect resources, and work around design challenges and problems that arise during construction

3-D Architecture

  • Ages: 8-10 yrs old
  • Days: Friday, 12/28

Can one sheet of paper hold up a laptop that is 600 times its weight? In this architectural engineering workshop, students will learn how changing the shape of an object can change how strong and stable it is. Concepts on force and load will be reviewed as students roll, fold, and tape notecards together to build the tallest tower, the strongest bridge, or a stand that can hold many times its weight, like an entire computer!



What to Bring

  • packed lunch (full-day only)
  • snacks
  • refillable water bottle
  • seasonally-appropriate outerwear (e.g. outdoor shoes, jacket, cold weather accessories if applicable, etc.)
  • rubber-soled indoor shoes
