WHAT: Maker Krewe is a gathering of young, creative makers who desire the time, tools and expertise necessary to solve meaningful hard problems.
WHY: Because kids are natural born tinkerers and problem solvers but rarely have the time they need to try and fail repeatedly until finally solving a problem or completing a meaningful project.
WHERE: Location details are posted on the registration page for each gathering. We are currently located at St. Andrew's School.
WHEN: Please see the home page for scheduled dates and times.
FOOD / DRINK: Please send a snack or lunch with your child.
WHO: Maker Krewe is best suited for children who are capable of working well independently. 2nd grade is the suggested minimum age, but many 1st graders have found success in the program.
Oskie Creech, the organizer, will be joined by at least one other adult maker with plenty of experience working with kids.
MATERIALS: We will provide all the materials and tools your child needs to dive right in and start making. You are welcome to send additional materials, particularly if there is a specific project your child is interested in working on. We are always looking for used electronics to disassemble and re-purpose!
