Additional information

For Summer 2021, our theme is Discovery! We’re seeking out new knowledge, finding unexpected connections between unusual things, and transforming our ideas into real life. In each studio, students will stretch their creative limits to come up with something they have never created before. They will design supercharged gadgets, program and build expressive robots, design and fabricate interactive clothing, explore deep-sea bots, even create animated stories filled with fantasy. In every studio, in a period of two weeks, students will go through the process of conceptualizing, designing, making, and presenting their projects.
