Launching Our Summer Passport with a Kick-Off Party!
May 15th, 2022 | Dawn Wilson, Community Learning Specialist
You’re invited to kick off Do Space In Motion!
Help us kick off our Summer Passport program with this tech-tacular Kick-Off party for Do Space In Motion! Geared toward kids ages 6-12, our Summer Passport is designed to help kids explore different areas of STEAM, with drop-in events, take and make kits, VR Thursdays, and, of course, our Kick-Off extravaganza!
Join us Saturday, June 4th, from 1:00pm to 3:00pm as we officially launch Do Space In Motion. Make your way around the activity stations inside and outside the building!
Join us upstairs for fun activities!
PASSPORT PAPER CIRCUITS
Start here to get your Summer Passport and bring it to life with a mini circuit! You can power up your Passport with conductive tape and LEDs!
VIRTUAL REALITY HEADSETS
Experience rock climbing…without ever leaving the floor! Spend a few minutes scaling peaks with Do Space’s virtual reality system!
Create your own summer-fun keepsake with 3D pens! Design your own, or use one of our stencils to draw and build your creation with a 3Doodler!
Experiment with coding as you guide the Finch robots through mini obstacle courses!
Head Outside to the Made New Mobile Makerspace
Head out to the west parking lot, where the Made New Makerspace truck will have more stations set up!
Bring on the bling! Design your own flair, then learn to print and assemble it into a button!
LASER-ETCHED LICENSE PLATES
Engrave miniature license plates using a laser cutter!
Pit different types of robots against each other and see which one comes out on top!
After the Kick-Off, head over to Beanstack and register for your digital passport. Track your participation as you join us for our drop-ins on Tuesdays or Thursdays between 1:00pm and 2:30pm (the drop-in project from Tuesday will repeat on Thursday), complete a take and make (while supplies last), or attend any of our regularly-scheduled children’s classes in our calendar, like Make It! and VR-Room Thursdays (space is limited; registration is required). You can find more information about our weekly events on the Passport webpage, and registration links and more information about class topics in our calendar.
Your digital passport on Beanstack is where you will keep track of all of your completed Summer Passport Program activities. With each activity you complete, you will earn 100 points. The more points you earn, the more prizes you will win! Between June 4th and August 30th, you may redeem your points for prizes by showing us your prize badge at Do Space. Prizes may be claimed all at once or individually.
500 Points: Custom Stunt Glider Kit
1000 Points: Articulated 3D Print
1500 Points: Brain Bricks Mechanics: Adventure Park
Summer Passports will be available at Do Space throughout the summer. A paper passport is not required to track your activities on Beanstack.
