MicroCamp: Weekend Edition
Center staff members will facilitate the MicroCamp: Weekend Edition event and will offer instructions, examples, or activities as close to 9 a.m. as possible leaving the remaining time available for individual and groups of makers to use toward completing their project. Feel free to stay the entire time or take off early if that best meets your needs.
Dungeons and Dragons
This event takes place each week on campus. Light snacks will be provided. Leading the campaign is CMU staff member and longtime D&D Dungeon Master Mike Reuter. Center staff members will coordinate and support this program for middle and high school students. All levels of experience with D&D are welcome.
The goal, each month, is to provide students time and access to Center staff and STEM Education Scholar mentors as well as makerspace tools and materials as they work to improve and develop their prototypes and/or presentation boards. By devoting this time to only students participating in these programs, facilitators will have more availability to meet the needs of individuals and groups. This is intended as a drop-off event for parents and an open lab, self-directed student work time for B3/IC participated in grades 3 - 8.
