Currently, we are working on Summer 2019 schedule! Please check back later for more information or subscribe to our newsletter to be notified about all our events and classes.
Brinn Labs’ Summer Sessions series is for Students age 13 to 18 and held during the months of July and August.
The sessions consist of hands-on learning experiences emphasizing practical maker skills and STEAM education, summer session themes include stop-motion animation, 3D design and printing, rough and finish carpentry, learn to solder and more. Single half-day sessions are $45; five sessions bundle for $200.
Wednesday sessions are devoted to specific maker skills, with demonstrations, instruction and projects, so you can practice what you have learned – that’s where the wildcard comes in!
Wildcard Wednesdays will take place from 1 pm to 4 pm. Skills we have covered in the past include:
Fabrication Tools and Shop Safety
Learn how to use a variety of fabrication tools found in a typical workshop, and how to be safe when working in a shop.
Have you ever wondered how a house or garage is built? It all starts with framing! Join us to learn the basics of building out a frame.
Soldering and Circuit Boards
How do electronics work? We’ll explore some simple circuits and learn to solder wires and components together, as well as cover how circuit boards work and how to make your own.
Stop Motion Animation
Learn about different animation techniques and then create your own digital stop-motion animations using our equipment.
Tinkercad is an easy-to-use, browser-based tool for 3D modeling. We’ll go over the basics you need to know when designing in 3D and get hands-on with the software.
Introduction to Arduino
The Arduino microcontroller can be used to create fun electronics projects, or prototype potential products. We’ll learn the basics of wiring and coding an Arduino and get things blinking in no time!
Where do you start when you want to bring your ideas to life? With prototyping! We’ll introduce the skills needed to design a prototype.
