Science Discovery Joins the Maker Movement!

Science Discovery is joining the maker revolution! As you may know, the recent ‘maker movement’ has been labeled the new industrial revolution. At the heart of the movement are ‘maker spaces’ that allow for tinkering, creativity, collaboration and innovation. This week we celebrate the launch of our first-ever Maker Space summer camp! Instructor, Brian Jernigan, is leading campers through the engineering design process as they work to solve a variety of problems.
