Making the Future camp participants learn about circuitry during the 6-week camp hosted by the Brightmoor Maker Space at the Detroit Community Schools. During the camp, middle and high school students from Developing K.I.D.S., an after school community program serving families in Detroit’s Brightmoor and Cody Rouge neighborhoods, learned a wide range of skills. The campers rotated through six maker stations: woodworking, gardening, bike maintenance and repair, t-shirt design and printing, paper making, and circuitry.
Making the Future was supported by Cognizant with administrative support from Vanguard Charitable (VC). The camp was also supported by the Youth Development Initiative, through funding from The Skillman Foundation, to increase delivery of quality services to youth in the Brightmoor/Cody Rouge neighborhoods. This initiative is a component of The Skillman Foundation’s Youth Development Alliance.
