during the 
Design Studio: Illuminate™ module. 
In the I Can Invent: Next Level Gamers™ module, participants will take apart broken or unused appliances
using real tools to create a physical video game model in the 3rd dimension!

 are introduced along with hands-on activities like constructing super-structure mega-towers, assembling
out-of-this-world 
space rockets and so much more! 
Ms.Jones, Mrs. McAuley, Mrs. Baum and Mrs. Trost will instruct the program modules and enthusiastic high school
