· Urban Workshop

Fall 2022 classes start Monday, September 12th!

Urban Workshop is the only hands-on shop class that gets kids to put down their phones, solve difficult problems using their hands, experience real tools and solutions, and learn new skills that last a lifetime.

These are no ordinary STEM classes, more like old school shop classes that combine new technology and traditional skills. Students will have fun, get dirty, use loud and obnoxious tools and make a lot of saw dust, metal chips, and wire scraps along the way!

Classes are for kids and teens ages 10-16. Call (949) 296-2153 to use charter funds.

Camps and classes for adults offered too.
