Maker-Camp-Week-One

Maker Camp is fun for everyone! Best Kids Activities for Week One!


Maker Camp is a cool virtual camp that supplies folks with ideas & instructions for cool daily projects as well as fun interviews & videos related to various topics. Here are week one's best picks for kids. See the full lineup for week one, here.

Day One: Make a Milk Jug Rocket Launcher - Link
This seems like a pretty simple project anyone can enjoy & to top it off there was a live stream from behind-the-scene at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center. 


Day Two: Rola Bola Balance Board - Link

Not only will this be fun to make, but it will be a blast to play & strengthen balance with. I've seen these before, decorated with bright-colored duct tape designs.

 

Day Three: Build a Heron's Fountain with a water bottle - Link
This is very cool. It's a project that doesn't use electricity, but seems like it might. Heron (Hero) of Alexandria was a mathematician and an inventor. He is well known for his steam engine, the Aeolipile, and many other inventions that use pneumatics.
