Comic Book Heroes:

We’re dressing up our very own superhero! Superheroes look their best when drawn in action poses, with faces that tell their story. We have superhero templates and fashion textiles to kick-start the ultimate comic book star!

Custom Cards:

Cards are a great way to send a message – from “Happy Birthday” to “Happy Holidays”. Let’s design the ultimate greeting card! We can add fun words and pictures, and make our messages stand out with pop-ups and pops of color.


We’re designing a city of the future! How will we handle the traffic flow of all those who work and live in the city? Our mission is to create a pop-up vision of a future metropolis whose citizens get around safely on foot, on wheels, and in flight!

Game On!:

In this class, we will dive into board game design. Our mission is to create a board game that teaches players about the wonders of ocean life. We’ll design the game board, cards, and pieces, and then challenge each other to play!

Mars Habitat:

Our mission is to design a habitat for a Martian colony. We will explore architectural design to imagine a practical home for people living on Mars. Then, we’ll sculpt our designs to create our own 3-D models.

My Style:

We’re dreaming and designing to find our own personal style! We will learn how to create our own, wearable designs. Once we’re done creating, we’ll wear our masterpieces home!

Picture Perfect:

Hooray for Hollywood! We have been challenged to create a poster to promote a movie. We will learn the elements of graphic design to create exciting, eye-catching posters.

Pitch Your Product:

Anyone, at any age, can be a business entrepreneur! We’re learning how to turn an idea into a retail product. Let’s design and build a prototype of the perfect tool that everybody needs.

Universal Treehouse:

Designing with universal accessibility in mind We’re making the rainforest our home for a year! We’ll be designing a treehouse where three scientists will live and work. The mission involves making our treehouse animal-proof and wheelchair accessible.

Wild Animation:

Let’s travel into the woods! We’ll design a storyboard to spread the word about protecting this cool ecosystem! We’ll also make a flipbook to see how film animators connect images to create moving pictures.
