“I learned a ton of new things like using the laser cutter and vinyl cutter. The coaches were very helpful and gave us plenty of time to play and to work on independent projects.”
“This is the best camp I’ve even gone to. I hope I come back soon.”
“This camp has been the best camp i have ever been to.I would really enjoy coming to this camp again next summer!”
We give children the time and support to follow their ideas and intuition. When the world seems so busy and time is our most precious commodity we give kids a chance to slow down, a chance to play with materials, tools and machines with the support of expert coaching, a chance to learn at their own pace while surrounded with possibility. A week or two at FabNewport in the summer is like having full access to grandfather’s shop and someone around to ask questions and lend a helping hand.
We have no idea what kind of jobs will even be available in when today’s middle school children reach the workplace. Why not give children a chance to find out what they like to do and what they are good at? Give kids a chance to develop self confidence by learning how to make with powerful tools, materials and machines.
