How do you learn to use tools? Jump into projects that will teach you what you need to know.

A Day of Color and Slime
Learn just how important color is as a design tool. Finger paint and make slime, experiment and play.

A Day of Design
Designing is a tool. Hack a dragon or dinosaur to create your own creature never seen before. If you can imagine it, you can probably build it with lots of parts to choose from.

A Day of Games
Playing is a tool. It's how we practice what we learn. In the morning, play some familiar games with rules everyone already knows. Then design a new one with your own rules.Make tops and play games with them.

A Day of Boats
Build your own boat, design a new one or create a classic. Play outside in our water lab, testing the waters with your creation.

A Day of Blocks and Building
We've always said inside every kid there is a castle. So here's your chance to build your own – on a scale that allows you to finish in a day.
