Neuron Garage

At the Neuron Garage, your children repurpose recycled materials to solve fun, weekly building challenges. Along the way, they build the foundation for a vibrant and expansive future.

The problems your children tackle are open-ended, with no set solutions. And the materials they use are simple and multi-purpose. This combination unlocks a level of engagement and resourcefulness that is both joyful and transformational.

Our thoughtfully trained team guides your children to tap into their own genius and to collaborate with their peers for inspiration and support. Campers learn how to give and receive feedback from other campers, how to push themselves to create their best work, and how to recover from frustration and setbacks in order to continue forward. As they build with their hands, these experiences build confidence and resilience, propelling them onto their next challenge — whether at camp or beyond.

o June 8th – June 12th: Mission Possible Can you build a case to protect a super-delicate secret package from bumps and drops? Can you build an airplane to carry that package safely over a raging sea? This week campers will team up as Secret Agents on a mission to transport high-value, sensitive packages across various obstacles!

o June 15th – June 19th: Medieval Construction If your kingdom was under attack, could you defend it? Can you build a castle with a working drawbridge? Can you design a catapult the fires accurately enough to ward off intruders? This week campers will use two simple machines — pulleys and levers — along with lots of imagination, to build castles with defense systems.

o June 22nd – June 26th: Marble Roller Coasters What kind of adventure park can you create with toilet paper tubes and tape – and loads of other recycled goods? This week campers will design, build, and refine marble games and rollercoasters. As they master the basics, the challenge increases. How long can you make your rollercoaster? Can the marble do a loop? Two? The challenges and solutions are endless, as is the creative output.

o July 6th – July 10th: Structural Integrity If a storm knocked out the bridge between the island you live on and the mainland it was connected to, would you be able to rebuild it? If you could use only two materials to build it, what would they be? How much weight could it hold? This week campers will take on a series of building challenges with limited resources and unlimited creativity.

o July 13th – July 17th: Stop the Plop How do you protect a raw egg from cracking when dropped from various heights? What materials do you need? How does your design change if materials are limited or the egg has to be visible inside its container? This week campers will design, build, and test containers to try to avoid the plop, or rather splatter, of a raw egg hitting a hard surface.

o July 20th – July 24th: Space Survival If you crash-landed on an unknown planet, what would you do? Would you stay and build shelter, or would you fix your engine and design a new spaceship? This week, campers will race against the clock to create self-propelled spaceships and shelters for outer space survival.

o July 27th – July 31st: Cardboard Arcade Calling all game makers! This week campers will work creatively within the confines of various sets of limitations to turn recycled materials into a functioning arcade. We’ll celebrate their accomplishments by playing each other’s games.

Skyhawks Sports Academy

40 years ago, Skyhawks had the vision that every child should experience the joy and benefits of sports.

In 1979, Jeff Heimbigner recognized that children of varying athletic levels did not have the same opportunity to learn sport-specific skills as serious players or elite young athletes. Many of these children aspired to be better players but unfortunately did not have the best setting in which to learn sport-specific skills, have fun, be safe, and take those lessons home and apply them to their everyday lives. Jeff had a vision that every child should experience the joy and benefits of sports. Jeff created a purpose for the company: “Teaching life skills through sports.”

With his vision and purpose stated, Skyhawks Sports was born.

Skyhawks Sports started as a regional soccer program focused in the Pacific Northwest. The popularity of the camps grew as the years went by, and some amazing athletes and wonderful individuals emerged. These soccer-focused Skyhawks camps emphasized critical lessons in life, such as sportsmanship, teamwork, and winning and losing with grace.

As the years passed, Skyhawks added more sports and more safe, fun, and skill-focused camps for sports like basketball, flag football, volleyball, and baseball while remaining true to its purpose and vision. Today, Skyhawks offers camps, clinics, and leagues in more than 10 different sports, multi-sport programs, and even Mini-Hawk® programs tailored for athletes as young as 4-years-old!

The Austin Artery

We provide an art education unlike any other in Austin.  We balance our lessons in an area that provides children with lesson in technical skill, while ALSO providing them the unstructured time and space to truly develop their own unique creativity and voice.

Your child won’t always come home with a finished product because we believe that the learning process in more valuable than a finished product. We believe that when children are allowed to experiment and solve their own creative challenges, they learn grit, passion and a growth mindset. We take projects through the entire creative process starting with brainstorming, research, technical lesson, and letting them experiment with their own techniques, solutions and twists. Current research shows that true creative thinking is developed when children’s creative process is honored.
