Upcoming Camp-ins

September 28, 2018 Public Girl Scout Camp-In

Become a Maker and tap into your own creativity as you build, design and create your own inventions! Investigate stop-motion animation using tablet computers! Questioning, testing, even sometimes failing are important steps in the building process.
