SGCS Summer Camps

The d.Lab for Making at SGCS is the state-of-the-art, first-of-its-kind makerspace in Central Texas where our maker education curriculum empowers students by creating opportunities to shape and influence the world around them.  This program allows for experiential learning with an emphasis on innovation, solution-seeking, and collaboration.

And now, it’s available to all Central Texas students over the summer

Each week, campers will face new and different challenges to solve while growing in imagination and creativity, building confidence, and learning important lessons about perseverance and resilience.  Campers will be grouped by grade level to ensure activities are age-appropriate, fun, and stimulating.
