Mini Maker Workshops

Create, code, and construct in GCM’s Mini Maker Workshops! Spend time learning a new maker skill, explore various tools and materials in our Makerspace, and enjoy Open Make Time with new friends. Kids will spend the first 30-45 minutes of each workshop learning a specific maker skill (creating, coding, or constructing), and then spend the rest of the time either applying that new skill to a project of their own or practicing other skills and making a new project.
