ProjectFUN Weekend Workshops

ProjectFUN Weekend Workshops offers students the opportunity to take some of our most popular Summer Workshops, or to study a concentrated topic within art, game design and development, programming, engineering, or music and sound over a series of Saturdays during the school year. 

ProjectFUN Weekend Workshops are also a perfect way for students to complete prerequisites before attending more advanced ProjectFUN Workshops in the summer. This is a great program for students both new and returning!
