Problem-solvers and puzzlers unite! We will work on jigsaw puzzles, complete scavenger hunts, and find the correct pathway in “human maze”. We will also get crafty, making our own puzzles and creating our own board games! This camp combines problem-solving and creativity. We will make paper airplanes and test them, seeing what makes the airplanes fly farthest, highest, or fastest. After crafting we will break up our day by getting up to dance and move to Go Noodle games.

Welcome to the Maker Movement! Maker Camp is inspired by the maker movement, which brings together people who like to create, make and explore - all while having FUN! Campers in Duke School’s Maker Camp will have opportunities to tinker, question, experiment, try something new, challenge themselves, work in teams, and get a little messy! Join us for a week of “making” awesome projects, virtual "field trips," and connecting with like-minded young makers from around the world on Google+. Maker Camp will inspire your camper to embrace their inner maker, get their hands dirty, fix some things, break some things, and have a lot of fun doing it!
