Super Summer in the Clubhouse
The super summer has begun in the Flagship Computer Clubhouse.
We are already in our second week of the Summer Entrepreneurship Program. Our awesome interns, Ashley, Manny, Kurtis, and Eric have chosen different Clubhouses from around the world as muses to create a variety of projects using new and innovative technology. They have the freedom to “make” with the 3-D printer, button-making machine, a T-shirt press, and many other forms of creative technology within the Clubhouse space. The theme of the projects center around folklore, cultural items, and creating youth centered products. Engrained within the summer cross-cultural learning and creating, the interns will also be creating their own logo and website to promote their projects. And most importantly, they have served as mentors to younger members new to the Clubhouse culture and learning model.
In the midst of the Summer Entrepreneurship program, the Clubhouse is also participating in Maker Camp. Maker Camp is a 6-week virtual summer camp for anyone interested in DIY (do it yourself), making, creating, crafting, hacking, tinkering, and discovery. From discovering the possibilities of a raspberry pi to creating a balloon powered airplane, the making is up and going!
Special Thanks to our June & July C2C Speaker, Michael Boyle and Jack Payette. Michael came in and showcased his student’s work at the Computer Art and Animation Department at Bunker Hill Community College and talked about his professional journey in the video game industry. Jack spoke to the youth about his love of oceanography, computer science and the arts, and how that led him to where he is today. His oceanographic research and some cool information from the presentation can be found here.
Stay tuned for more awesome happenings at the Clubhouse.
