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.

Build leadership skills, meet other kids who are makers, make your own project, and more.


Kids will learn everything they need to know to create their very own game and website, including character development, storyboarding, animation, environment and level design, beta testing and, of course, coding.

In this program, kids will dive into several coding programs: Stencyl, Scratch and Thimble/HTML.
Scratch is a popular introductory programming language made by MIT that uses building blocks of code that fit together to create a program, with no complicated spelling or grammar to worry about. Like Scratch, Stencyl uses visual coding language (block-based coding) and prepares students with the foundation for many other programming languages like Python Java, and C.

Kids will gain a comprehensive understanding of game-making and design. Learning any new language or skill learning to code takes practice, and with video game and personal website creation practice is fun. Students will meet other like-minded kids and will be able to collaborate on games together and play together.

Example projects: Multi level games, space, maze and adventure games! Kids will make their very own websites!

Breaks, games and park time is also included for kids to exercise their imagination, have fun and strengthen team building.

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

Project-Based Learning

Make something awesome, create your own inventions and collaborate with others! We aim to create a transformative experience for kids to empower them to be the leaders of tomorrow with the skills and mindsets to create a better world.

21st Century Skills

Students work in teams to solve problems as well as create their own designs and inventions. Combining on- and off-screen work, our programs will advance skills in communication, leadership, design and critical thinking.
