I’m A Maker! Bootcamp, Savannah

Friday, June 3rd, 2016

Maker Bootcamp Savannah Unique Savannah summer day camp – I’m a Maker! Bootcamp – teaches youth valuable technical skills.

This five day-long series of workshops this summer will teach local youth basic skills in 3D modeling, 3D printing & wood turning.

The first annual I’m a Maker! Bootcamp is July 25-July 29 by Maven Makers and is open to ages of 10-15.

The brick and mortar Maven Makers location opened in the fall of 2015 as a Savannah-based “maker space” and is the first business of its kind in the area. A maker space is a relatively new concept in which creative individuals known as “Makers” share their technical knowledge and skills, as well as tools and equipment.

In the same way a gym membership provides access to an array of exercise equipment, a maker space grants its members the use of an entire workshop for a nominal fee.

During the I’m A Maker! Bootcamp, youths between the ages of 10 and 15 will receive training on various shop equipment and power tools with an emphasis on their safe and responsible operation.

Once trained, the young Makers will create two spinning tops, one carved by hand on a wood lathe and another utilizing state-of-the-art 3D modeling and 3D printing technology. The camp will include competitions pitting the Makers’ spinning tops against one another to find out which ones spin the longest. The Makers will learn the principals of Design Thinking – a methodology of finding solutions to complex problems – to refine and improve the designs of their tops, and make them spin longer.

No prior technical knowledge or power tool experience is required. Each camper will take home a free “I’M A MAKER” T-shirt, the spinning tops they create, as well as newly acquired technical skills in wood working, power tools, 3D design, and 3D printing.

The Maven Makers space is at 415 West Boundary St., Savannah. Workshops will be 9AM-3PM.

Aftercare from 3-5PM will be available for a nominal fee.

About Maven Makers

Maven Makers co-founder, Ty Donaldson, an alumni of Savannah College of Art and Design, started the company last year when he lost access to the school’s shop resources.

While enrolled at SCAD, I had access to their amazing arsenal of shop tools as a student, but that went away after I graduated,” Donaldson said. I knew other local SCAD alum who were in the same dilemma. That’s when my co-founder, Tim Cone, and I both realized Savannah was desperately in need of a maker space. Thus, Maven Makers was born.”

The Maven Makers shop, 415 West Boundary St. Savannah, 31401. Hours: Tue-Fri Noon– 9PM., Sat. 9AM–9PM Closed Sun. & Mon. The shop welcomes walk-ins to tour the facility & answer questions. Tel: 205-903-0489,  email events@mavenmakers.com Maven Makers is a SouthernMamas.com advertiser

St. Andrew’s ranks No.2 for the entire state of Georgia and No. 92 for the nation as one of the most challenging high schools.

Savannah Dyslexia Tutoring hosts Orton-Gillingham Training

Monday, May 2nd, 2016

Dyslexia Savannah Orton-Academy TrainingOur brains are wired for spoken language, but they are not naturally wired for reading.

Some people are still able to pick up reading and writing with ease, while 20% of learners really struggle with this process.

Dyslexia literally means difficulty with language and it can cause major education delays and destroy a bright student’s confidence in themselves and their ability to learn.

Are you interested in learning how to help struggling readers overcome these obstacles and reach their potential?

Savannah Dyslexia Tutoring is excited to announce that they are hosting Orton-Gillingham Training in Savannah Summer/Fall 2016 instructed by Sheila Costello M.S., Accredited Training Fellow, Academy of Orton-Gillingham Practitioners and Educators.

Orton-Gillingham is considered the “Gold Standard” in teaching reading and spelling to dyslexic students. Orton-Gillingham is a multi-sensory, structured, prescriptive and diagnostic approach to teaching reading. It has been successfully used with thousands of dyslexic students for more than 70 years.

This 60-hour course offers participants the opportunity to learn an effective approach for teaching children with language-based learning difficulties. The training prepares teachers to instruct diagnostically and prescriptively, either individually or in a classroom setting. The course will follow guidelines set by the Orton-Gillingham Academy of Practitioners and Educators for Associate Level certification. These guidelines also require a practicum, and for those who intend to seek certification a practicum is available following the course.

Dates:
June 6th- June 9th, 2016 (8AM- 4PM)
September 9th 2016 (5PM- 8PM) & September 10th 2016 (8AM- 3PM)
November 4th 2016 (5PM- 8PM) & November 5th 2016 (8AM- 3PM)

For more information and a registration packet please email welshcasey@gmail.com

About Musical Explorers

Originally designed by Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute (WMI) as a music education program that provides historical, cultural and geographical knowledge about the various communities of New York’s five boroughs, SMF’s Musical Explorers was adapted in partnership with WMI to apply similar lessons and learning practices to the Georgia coast and South Carolina Lowcountry.

In advance of each semester, trainings for local teachers are provided to give an overview of the curriculum, introducing vocal warm-up exercises, musical vocabulary and a variety of other basic musical concepts.

A 100-page teacher guide with accompanying student guides (including Georgia and South Carolina Standards/Common Core Capacities), videos and audio samples is distributed to each participating classroom annually, along with a complete web-based version for homeschoolers, parents and teachers using computers and interactive whiteboards.
