Summer Science Camp at Karkhana 13-17 June 2016

Hello Parents of 10-14 year olds:

Danny Smartt and I are working with Karkhana, a science/math/engineering cooperative in Gyaneschwor ( to try to put together a one-week summer camp in June for those of us in Kathmandu at that time. Some of you may have had children who attended a camp in the winter of 2014 there organized by Susan Parker-Burns.

Karkhana is offering a workshop called Creative Computing.

Creative Computing Workshop:

About the workshop: This workshop focuses on making interactive games using some programming and an Arduino. The video game generation enjoys it quite a bit apparently :-) This workshop, Creative Computing, is about 30 hours of time. It would take up most of the day with lunch and breaks thrown in.

Dates: 13-17 June

Times: Start at 8 or 8:30, End daily at 2 - 3 PM (details to be finalized), Lunch included.

Location: Karkhana's facilities in Gyaneschwor

Ages: 10-14 years old

Cost: Approximately $200 USD for the week (includes lunch), which assumes 8 participants. Note that the minimum number of participants is 8. If there are 15 campers, then the price goes to $125/participant.

We are sending this out to parents we know have 10-14 year olds, but please feel free to forward to other parents we may not know.

If you are interested:

Please email me or Danny at or Let us know the names and ages of your interested campers or questions you may have. We would need to have the minimum of 8 participants.
