Schedule/Classes

Course Scheduling

We offer various courses at two different locations.   Courses run during the day and  another available course for after-school.  Students meet at our facilities once a week with instructors at  designated times for the appointed course or twice a week for after-school students.  Students are highly encouraged to begin at the start of an eight week course.

Courses require a student to come with only their passions for making.  We provide the materials, tools and computers as well as teach the fundamentals and basics needed to accomplish the course goal.  The necessary basic computer skills, hand-on skills and safety will be taught alongside the course content.
