Why be bored when you can make your own fun? Today on Maker Camp we’ll be making some fun game stuff with an author of Unbored: The Essential Field Guide to Serious Fun.

Young maker Joey Hudy, a White House science fair veteran (his motto is “don’t be bored; MAKE something!”) will join us as well as his and his origami sensei mom—Julie Hudy.

Today’s project is a very unboring dice popper.

Tune in right here on Google+ at 11am PDT. If you build the dice popper or another project of your own, post it on the Maker Camp community page on Google+. See you at camp!
