Got a budding tech guru on your hands?

The Makers Factory in Santa Cruz is offering a slate of summer programs that might just be a perfect fit. There’s still time to register though you better do so quickly – slots are filling up fast and several sessions are already full.

Available programs include “introduction to robotics” for students aged 9 to 12 years old.

From the blurbage:

Summer is a great time to get your hands on some fun projects. As a team, use our LEGO Mindstorms kit to build and program a true robot to perform various tasks. Learn basic programming concepts with the drag-and-drop “kid friendly” Mindstorms software. Use mechanical engineering concepts to create accessories for the robot to use in completing it’s tasks.  Don’t worry if you don’t have any experience with any of the elements – design, electronics or programming because we’ll start at the most basic level and take you through the entire process in a supportive and fun environment.”

The class, which runs 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. from June 24 to 28, is $225.

Other options are introduction to game design,introduction to animation and intro to electronics, among others. More information about the summer camp offerings is here.

The Makers Factory on Cedar Street specializes in community events, classes and more in the areas of 3-D printing, animation, modeling and robotics.
