Our science, robotics and engineering summer camp is so fun, kids have no idea how much they’re learning!

Did your children come last year and love it? Sign them up again since this summer we’ll be offering awesome NEW projects!

Our youngest campers, rising grades K-1, will have their own Lego Building and Engineering classes where they will also explore physics as they learn how to design simple machines. We will also be exploring the world around us in Nature Science. Children will learn about butterflies, bees, and animals. In our Intro to Video Game Programming class, campers will create their own simple video game programs using Scratch on iPads. We also have an all-new set of Invention Lab projects where campers will experiment and tinker to their hearts’ content!

Rising grades 2-3 will be building and programming Bluetooth-controlled Lego robots using iPads and Wedo 2.0. We will also be creating video games using MIT’s Scratch programming.

Our 4th-6th-grade campers will be designing and programming robots that can navigate mazes and battle each other using Mindstorms. 4th-6th-grade campers will also learn how to design their own 3D objects and get a chance to print them out.

This summer we’ll be bringing back our Invention Lab with a variety of fantastic projects that float, fly and glow. In Young Engineers, we will be building an array of structures from geodesic domes to catapults.

Escape from Between the Lines: Jeanne McManus and Sara Maddox @ Park View Gallery Glen Echo Park
Jul 5 – Jul 27 all-day
Escape from Between the Lines: Jeanne McManus and Sara Maddox @ Park View Gallery Glen Echo Park

The Glen Echo Park Partnership is pleased to present “Escape from Between the Lines,” featuring paintings by Jeanne McManus and Sara Maddox. McManus and Maddox have escaped the narrow, black-and-white lines of professional editing and writing to find a world of color, concept, and experimentation. Once unburdened from their career obligations, they each found a world of freedom – one that also requires skill and dedication – but a more liberating one that the written word simply could not provide. In their paintings, they crack open the visible world and rearrange its parts in new forms and colors, often seeing human forms and stories emerge as they apply paint to canvas.

10 Years of Silver Works: Looking Back and Forward Looking @ Popcorn Gallery Glen Echo Park

The Glen Echo Park Partnership presents “10 Years of SilverWorks: Looking Back and Forward Looking” by SilverWorks Resident Artist Blair Anderson. This exhibition displays a new collection of the silversmith’s works as well as a retrospective of the last nine collections, featuring a piece or photo from each. Anderson’s latest collection is a riff on her last 30 years of work. More than just wearable art, Anderson infuses her work with meaning. Each piece telling a story, making a connection to the potential wearer. Using relics, unconventional materials, as well as beautiful gemstones from around the world, this collection digs deep at the human condition, pokes fun at politicians, tackles social justice and honors science fiction all in beautiful adornments. In addition to student work, the exhibition will feature this year’s Exnihilo Residency Winner Noha Nader. Anderson first opened her studio in November 2009 with just three students in her Silver Saturday workshop. This year – ten years later – SilverWorks will have offered over 100 classes and workshops with a team of 10 instructors.

Art Walk & Opening Reception:
