Maker-Ed Camp!

HCOS invites you to join us for Maker-ed

Camp description:
In this innovative and exciting camp, students will demonstrate how various forces can affect the movement of objects. They will demonstrate how using simple machines, including lever, wedge, pulley, ramp, and wheel can give them a mechanical advantage. Students will enjoy designing their own compound machine using the K’nex machines, experiment with alternative computer keyboards with the “Makey Makey” system, and use on-line video production with “Powtoons”.
