In our Sampler Camps, kids will dive into our three core STEM topics: Coding, Robotics and Minecraft.

If you’re looking for inspiring STEM education, this is the right place! In each camp, kids make something awesome, create their own projects and collaborate with others.

We aim to create a transformative experience for kids to empower them to be creators, not consumers, find their inner talents and discover skills they can use throughout their lives.

 

Project-Based Learning & 21st Century Skills 

In our Idea Incubator Camps, kids will dive into our three core STEM topics to propel their ideas, help them create something awesome and realize their full potential. Combining on- and off-screen work, our programs will advance skills in communication, leadership, design and critical thinking.

In Coding, kids will use Scratch and Stencyl to design their own video game and app. Fundamentals of game design will be taught in Scratch and kids will be able to take it up a notch as they progress in Stencyl, where they will be able to make and launch their game! They will learn about game design, graphic design, animation, and how to test and launch their games.

By programming Arduinos, kids can bring their out-of the-box musical inventions to life in our Robotics days. Coding through a block-based language, Ardublock, kids will get hands-on as they craft their creations. Kids will work with buzzers, sensors, motors and more. They may make instruments that spin, light up or even make a theremin!

On our Minecraft day, collaboration and sharing skill-sets with other students are key. As a team, they will work creatively (e.g. 3D design from the scale of pixels to entire digital worlds), learning technical skills, as they progress through the mechanics of Minecraft, and bolster their social skills through compromise and conflict resolution within their virtual and classroom community.

Join us for a week of creation, ideation, making and working with others.
