We asked for this for years. Looks like it's here now. Will the rest of the STEM programs rally behind this? Let's hope so. - Crafthaus

5-Day Sessions
June 6th–August 15th
Mondays–Fridays, 9:30AM–3:30PM*

Extended Maker Sessions available

Registration is now open!

Is your young tinkerer interested in how things work? These hands-on, project-based day camps are geared to intrigue and fire up the curiosity of kids ages 8-17.

Design & Build Camp: Introduces 8- to 17-year-olds to the engineering design process using laser cutters, 3D printers, and heat press and vinyl cutting. Participants identify design problems, brainstorm creative solutions, and prototype human-centered inventions using CAD (computer aided design) skills in 2D Design.

Basic Electronics Camp: Covers basic concepts related to electricity, circuits, electronic measurement and soldering. Projects include using solder, a soldering iron, and use of the laser cutter for fabricating parts.

Arduino Robotics Camp: Participants learn how to design, build and program their own microcontrollers!

Summer of Creation - Maker Sessions: This add-on gives young makers the opportunity to hang out at TechShop starting as early as 8:30AM and ending as late as 6:00PM! Be sure to purchase the Summer of Creation: Maker Session that begins on the same day as your youth's camp session.

Discounts available for early registration. See your location listings for specifics.

In 2013, I attended the soft opening of the Pittsburgh, PA store and was astounded by the visitor interest. There was a long line of people out the door to get into the TechShop and it was incredibly busy inside. Even though not all machines and work benches were up and running at the time, it was insightful to get a look at the future capabilities. Their waterjet cutter was a marvel. I attended with a blacksmith friend and we were nerding out just imagining the possibilities.

Loads of tools to work with, wood, metal, you name it. They stressed that everybody using tools would get proper instructions prior to being let loose. What I also liked was that most of the facility seemed to feature an open workplace environment, with the exception of the high dust areas. I could easily imagine the conversations going on between the various work areas and the fruitful interactions and collaborations.

A good place to be. Waiting for them to open something in Chicago. I'd go for sure.

The TECH shops offer access to equipment that artists, makers, or entrepreneurs may not have the resources, space or need to purchase for their own use. We live near the original Tech shop Look on their website for the list of equipment. You can buy a day pass, monthly pass or annual subscription. Most of the equipment requires a class to learn how to use that particular piece of equipment.

Their summer camps would be great if you have a student that wants hands on experience. There is no substitute for learning how to work with your hands even though many engineering and design jobs may be all digital.
