Inviting all 6th – 12th graders to participate in Dare 2 Design, a fun program for students. Convert your ideas into reality as you create fun models and innovative products while making new friends.

Dare 2 Design is a program for 6th – 12th graders to develop an innovative mindset. The students will work to solve a problem they face regularly. This fun, hands-on camp teaches problem-solving, collaboration, and the process of innovation by pairing students with university professionals with patenting knowledge and experience. A rigorously tested 8-step process makes it a fun and productive experience where students dabble with coding, 3D modeling, machine learning, and traditional building techniques.

In March 2023, participating students will have an opportunity to showcase their prototype at EMUiNVENT, a regional invention competition to win cool prizes.

Join us weekly after-school program at SPARK East Innovation Center (215 W. Michigan Ave, Ypsilanti) Tuesdays starting October 18, 2022, from 5:30 – 7:00 p.m. The camp fee is $358 per student. Students may bring their own laptops.
