Limit: 16 participants
This is a cumulative program and participants are requested to attend all three days.
Buildwave is a creative building program that feels like a video game! Students will build with different materials to "level up" each day.
Foster your child's interest in STEM while igniting their creative spark. Over the three sessions, students will create with over 50 mystery building materials, including LEGO, PlusPlus, and custom-made Buildwave projects. Each session of the program is a new "level" of the Buildwave game, with an audiovisual setup featuring animations and music that guide students through the different building waves. As your child creates with wave after wave of new objects, they build creative confidence, become better collaborators, and encounter design and engineering fundamentals in a unique and memorable context.
Instructor Tim Merle is the founder of Enrichment Labs LLC and the creator of Buildwave, a creative enrichment program for ages five and up. Within a background in the arts and a passion for creative expression, Tim has designed and implemented programming for more than 100 schools, libraries, and community centers across New England.
