Introduction: Summer Maker Passport Program 2017
The MakerSpace Passport program in 2017 consisted of 7 projects. This year we had over 1,400 kids come in and complete projects! We'll list the projects from 2017 here.
Step 1: Scratch
Scratch is a free educational programming language. We used some activities from DK Publishing's "Get with the Programming, Computer Coding Kit". Check out our SCRATCH page for the activities!
Step 2: Power Crystal
For this project we precut 1/8" acrylic on the laser cutter here at the MakerSpace. Add a rainbow LED and a coin cell battery, slot them together and you have a POWER CRYSTAL!
Step 3: Stamped Metal
A pretty simple metal stamping project.
Step 4: Solar Bug
We've done a vibrating bug/bot project nearly every year since opening the MakerSpace. This instructable has more thorough instructions.
Step 5: Cardboard Circuit
Build a simple circuit with an LED, battery, brass fasteners, paperclips and an optional photo-resistor.
Step 6: Viking Boat
This was a popular project, kids loved getting to use power tools!
Step 7: Duct Tape Zipper Pouch
An easier version of a duct tape wallet.
