Kids: Redesign Sioux Steel with Minecraft, Legos

May 15, 2018

A camp this summer will allow kids to play developer with tools they love: Minecraft and Legos.

That will help them navigate a design process to envision a potential future for the 11-acre downtown Sioux Steel site.

Led by Jordan Deffenbaugh, 4D EDU will use design thinking to help kids empathize, define, ideate, prototype and test their designs for the future.

“The future of learning is not confined to single subjects. It is about breaking down silos and connecting dots,” he said. “This series will teach kids to teach themselves, using the games and toys that they already love.”

The program will start with a visit to the Sioux Steel site July 6. The camp will be open to students age 7 to 14 and will run the week of July 9 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. with before- and after-camp care available.

Class will be in the Rock Island Building, 300 N. Phillips Ave., and cost $250 per student.

The program will end with a public presentation at 5 p.m. July 13 at Josiah’s Coffeehouse, Cafe & Bakery

Sign up for the class at 4D Design & Consulting.
