Maker Camp is a free, online summer camp for “building, tinkering and exploring.” The goal is to provide kids with inspiring STEM education throughout the summer months.

On the latest “virtual field trip,” the camp broadcasted live via Google+ Hangout to teach Makers how puppets are animated and fabricated.During the Hangout, Makers had the opportunity to virtually meet the winner of ‘Jim Henson’s Creature Shop Challenge’ season one as well as Creature Shop team members Peter Brooke, Julie Zobel, and John Criswell.
