CIADC Teen-Specific Camps Are Here!

12 to 17-year-olds are invited to join us in applying Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math to real-world making. Our instructors are experts at instilling a safe, hands-on, and creative work environment. 

"I am extremely fortunate to have had the opportunity to work with my hands from a young age, and to have mentors guide me along the way. My initial interests led me to a career in object design, engineering, and prototyping..."

"...equally important were the transferable skill sets I learned while creating objects in a shop setting. The gained responsibility, confidence, critical thinking, problem-solving, and empowerment shaped who I am today. This is the mission of CIADC. To offer these same opportunities and benefits to as many people as possible." - Matthew Runfola, Founder, Chicago Industrial Arts & Design Center
