PS3 and MakerState’s STEM Summer Camp offer week long summer camp programs featuring themes in robotics, coding, engineering, rocket science, game design, Minecraft, 3D design and more.
PS3 STEM Camp includes a field trip every Wednesday where kids will develop and use their skills in different settings!
Our STEM Summer Camp Programs are designed to develop kids’ STEM skills as well as communication skills, creativity, critical thinking and problem-solving skills. Summer Camp is taught by fingerprinted and background-checked Maker Fellows who excel in STEM.
MakerState’s mission is to help transform K-12 education through student-centered, inquiry-based and experiential learning. Our approach to STEM education allows kids to create and problem solve through the implementation of robotic technology, coding, engineering, rocket science, game design, Minecraft and 3D design and more.
Science/Tech/Engineering/Arts/Maker Camp with emphasis on Fun! Our STEM Summer Camp in the West Village focuses on developing kids’ STEM skills and social skills through team oriented, challenging projects. This year MakerState introduces an overarching theme of Sustainability. This provides kids with the opportunity to connect the lessons, community and the wider world through addressing real-world issues, and solving them through STEM education.
MakerState offers in-depth, hands-on instruction of STEM focused learning – best part is we make it fun for kids! During summer camp we teach kids coding, lego robotics and engineering.
Do you have a robot or video game enthusiast at home? We would love to meet them!
We’re launching into hands-on rocket design and sustainable space exploration in this introduction to NASA engineering. We’ll build a lemon-powered light and a DIY electromagnet with wire, a nail, and a battery. We’ll automate farms, build green transport systems, and cultivate alternative fuels in the Roblox Studio and control our vehicles, rockets and satellites with the Micro:bit microcontroller.
Roll up your sleeves engineers! This week it’s all about hands-on building! We’ll explore how engineers at NASA, Apple and Tesla create smart rockets, devices, and cars with lots of hands-on projects in LEGO robotics and MaKey MaKey microcontrollers.
Calling future astronauts and rocketeers! We’re building sustainable spacecraft and space stations for launches, orbits, landings, and even a few malfunctions, explosions, repairs, and rescues. We’ll make balloon towers that mimic graphene geothermal systems and global cooling space tubes and a shock absorbing, parachute space lander and test it with an egg!
How do you create a farm that is kind to animals? How do you make the subway friendly to all riders? How do you power a giant city on solar energy? This is your chance to build, code and playtest games based on your wildest dreams…of a sustainable world.
Let’s build robots that walk, roll, lift, talk, play and learn! We’ll start by building a hydraulic powered robotic arm and a DIY electromagnet with wire, a nail, and a battery. We’ll design and code new Roblox Studio worlds where virtual robots can play and explore.
You are the next generation of space explorers and it’s up to us to discover and create new worlds! Let’s suit up and fire those booster rockets to create real rockets that fly and virtual rockets that explore moons and planets. We’ll build spacecraft, fly them, and try to help the little Kerbals fulfill their ultimate mission of creating sustainable space travel.
This camp is all about hands-on creativity! We’ll build sustainable robots, music, and games with our pocket-sized, programmable Micro:bit micro-computers. We’ll create Mondrian-inspired playdough art, spinning animation phenakistoscopes that demonstrate persistence of vision, and re-create those epic artworks in Minecraft.
