AUGUST 1-5

THE ART OF PERSUASION:
A GRAPHIC DESIGN CHALLENGE
Each day, people living in major cities see thousands of ads. They permeate roads, schools, public transport systems, pediatricians’ offices – even our very own living rooms. Through this MakerLab session, we ask young people to think about ads critically and uncover the messages they wish to convey. We also challenge young people to develop ad campaigns on issues relevant to them and their communities – which may range from ads on diversity and democratic citizenship; girls’ education; adolescent mental health issues; poverty; climate change; and gender inequality.
PLUSH TOY LABORATORY
Plush toys help kids imagine, role-play, develop language and social skills, manage emotions and build confidence. During this 3-hour workshop, kids learn the principles of design as they create their own furry friends to cherish and share.
LARPING
Live-action Roleplaying allows young people to assume various roles and identities in a world of their own creation. Are you a warrior or thief? An assassin or mage? Create costumes and head gear, forge your own weapons and engage in adventures of epic proportions.
INTERACTIVE STORYTELLING: FAIRY TALES RETOLD
What would we think of Snow White if the tale we’ve come to know and love was told from the point of view of her (Evil?) Stepmother? What would have happened to Hansel and Gretel if they encountered a fairy in the forest who had given them access to Waze? What would society look like if every princess or damsel in distress was replaced by a headstrong and valiant heroine? What happens beyond ever after? Reimagine timeless tales and call them your own as you develop your own interactive stories. Empower your readers with choice as their actions help determine the story’s outcomes. No coding background required.
DIY BOOMERANGS AND OTHER PROJECTILE WEAPONS
Slings. Bows and arrows. Boomerangs. Catapults. Trebuchets. Discover physics principles as you design and build your very own projectile weapons. Note: Only marshmallows, rainbows, magical and non-lethal objects will be fired. No kids will be harmed in the making of these weapons.

AUGUST 8-12

PEDOMETER HACK
A pedometer is a device that counts the number of steps you take while wearing it. But what else can it do? We invite you to swing by the lab as we tear apart pedometers and put them back together in unique ways. What will you invent today?
CPR: COMPUTER PARTS RESCUSITATION
What to do with a dead computer? Bring it to life, of course! Tear apart old computers and put them back together in interesting and compelling ways. Inventors wanted
DA VINCI’S MACHINES
Leonardo Da Vinci has been synonymous with the Renaissance period. Discover how his genius inventions paved the way to modern technology. Bring out your inner Da Vinci by making models of his devices and giving them a unique twist of your own!
CARDBOARDING CHALLENGE
Inspired by the short film, ‘Caine’s Arcade,’ the Global Cardboard Challenge is an annual event presented by the Imagination Foundation that celebrates child creativity and the role communities can play in fostering it. In line with this event, kids of all ages are invited to swing by Sparklelab and build anything they can dream up with cardboard, duct tape and lots of imagination!
PATTERN MAKING
Unicorns and rainbows. Mischievous little monsters. Op art. Alphabet soup. Swing by Sparklelab and create textiles with your very own designs and learn the art of pattern making, silk screening and block printing.

AUGUST 15-19

CREATING CHARACTERS AND CONCEPT ART
What is your character’s name? How old is she? Where is she from and what does she look like? What kind of mannerisms does she have? Is your character cheerful and sweet? Smart and sarcastic? Or all gloom and doom? What does your character love? What does she fear? Who are her friends and enemies? We invite you to dive into the craft of storytelling by developing compelling characters and wielding your digital art and photo manipulation skills to bring your character to life.
DIY TRADING CARD GAME
Magic The Gathering. Pokemon. Yu-Gi-Oh. Card games have an amazing ability to endow players with special abilities and immerse them in magical worlds – worlds with their own unique systems, rules and purpose. Dream up your own world. Create compelling characters. Endow them with strengths and vulnerabilities. Develop a card battle system of your own. Then play, share and have an awesome time. May the best player win!
FABLAB: 3D PRINTING CHALLENGE
