DSKI Makers Camp 2019
The Right Mix - Tinkering + Engineering + Language
The DSKI Summer Camp is a specially designed camp for curious makers to construct, tinker and engineer, with a strong focus on developing soft skills and independence.
In an intentionally set-up space, makers will learn to manage their time, resources and ideas while having fun, working out ways to solve problems as they create exciting projects through experimentation and discovery.
A linguistic component has been added to our camp this year to provide a fun platform for creative expression.
