Technocopia Worcester Summer Camps

This summer, we offer 6 different full-week programs, each with a creative theme, exploring the range of technology, science, wood working, art, culture and just plain fun.

Different from other summer programs, ours benefit from the resources of the workshops and studios of the Technocopia maker space. As such, in all programs children will learn how to safely use basic hand tools and have age appropriate access and training on our digital fabrication resources such as a 3D printer, laser cutter and digital vinyl cutter (for making custom stickers of all sizes.)

Our experienced staff are creative, smart, and committed to creating a safe and fun experience for your child. Staff ratio is 6:1.

2020 Technocopia Worcester Summer Camps

Skateboards
July 6-10, 2020
Register now!
Make your own skateboard from scratch! Shape it like Pokemon, Minecraft, a cat, a slice of pizza! This skateboard will be like nothing you and your parents have seen. We will build up our wheels and trucks, put on deck tape in any pattern we want, and paint our board with our own cool designs. This is an end to end skateboard design and build, using a wide range of tools. At the end of the week we will bring some local skateboard legends to admire our boards and show us a few moves! Absolutely no skateboarding experience required! Ages 5-15.

Toys & Games
July 13-17, 2020
Register now!
What a delightful week. For parents to know, this is kind of an old-fashioned week; kids making their own games! Be it a chess or checker set, or Mancala board, it’s our chance to prove that children can be engaged individually and socially by tactile play. Let us all enjoy discovering that a screen is not required in order for your children to have a good time! It’s a refreshing and surprising week, your children will be engaged and invested in the games they make and bring home. Our experience with Toys and Games is that the week may surprise you… a refreshing and really fun week! Ages 5-15.

Buildings & Cities
July 20-24, 2020
Register now!
Our young engineers will learn what buildings are made of and how they stand up. We will design and build small and large models of different kinds of buildings of different cultures. We will develop a city or two and learn about urban networks and how they relate to the ecosystems around them. We will learn about bridges and how they manage to stay standing with all the stuff that goes across them… and we will make our own bridges and load them up! An eye-opening and dynamic week! Buildings and cities is a great week to partner with the week that precedes, Transportation. Ages 5-15.
