Explore the fabric of our lives! This fun STEAM camp brings science, art, engineering and maker skills into focus as we discover the textiles around us. We’ll make lots of take-home projects as we take a closer look at the properties of fabric that keep us warm, cool, dry and looking good. Discover the bugs, plants, animals and recycled trash that give us the raw materials. The engineering behind the weaving, knitting and felting that create the fabrics. Joining fabric to suit 2D and 3D needs. The surprising ways we use textiles–from fashion to nanotechnology–in our homes and businesses. Techniques for designing to put a personal touch on each of the many take-home projects. Boys and girls will learn new skills, and will have lots of opportunity to play and be creative.
