Summer Camps @ Howard Community College

Displaying IMG_4514.JPGWe believe kids need tools, not just toys. Thus, we’ll be bringing our hands-on makerspace for elementary and middle school students to the fantastic Howard Community College Campus! Futuremakers will be providing a wide array of courses for many ages throughout the Summer. Our courses are taught by experienced coaches and the curriculum ranges from woodworking to electrical engineering. Participants will learn about what it takes to be a maker in the modern age. Check out some of our courses below!
