Design Camp at Home

REGISTRATION IS CLOSED FOR VIRTUAL 2021 DESIGN CAMP AT HOME

WHY COOPER HEWITT DESIGN CAMP AT HOME?

At Cooper Hewitt Design Camp at Home, we equip students with the tools necessary to tackle age-appropriate challenges, work collaboratively, and think creatively. Campers master a four-step design process—defining problems, generating ideas, prototyping/making, and testing/evaluating—through a series of fun exercises and design challenges. Each project is carefully crafted to introduce children to design vocabulary, techniques, and processes that will help them in school and in life.

PROGRAM DETAILS

Live instruction will be facilitated via Zoom by a Cooper Hewitt educator on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday of each one-week session. Registration and participation commitment is for all three days. Self-guided projects are available on Tuesday and Thursday.

There is no cost to participate. One week prior to your first day of camp, you’ll receive additional instructions including a Zoom link, schedule, policies and resources.

If your plans change and your child(ren) are unable to attend a session, please contact the Design Camp Director to cancel your registration at least three days prior to the first day of camp.
