Two week camp sessions running from June 8th - August 14th, 2015. Ages 7 - 15.

3D Printing & Scanning * Virtual Reality * Robotics and Electronics * Programming * Music and Video Production * Drone Flight School * Minecraft * and more!





The summer is upon us once again and we have cooked up an entertaining camp of fun and learning for the kids. Does your child have an interest in technology, music or art? Our camp is designed for kids to explore their interests while learning how to manage their learning experience. The curriculum is centered around exploring topics such as: programming, electronics, robotics, microcomputers, virtual reality, 3D printing, drones, music, video creation, collaboration, communication, and entrepreneurship. During the camp the kids will be making something they can be proud to show to other people.

Maybe your child wants to play MineCraft all day. She might take interest in designing and building traps within the game and sharing it with her friends. Building traps introduces them to higher forms of planning and learning by managing their design and implementing the necessary logic into their system. Or maybe your child likes to fly RC drones. Learning to fly and maneuver obstacle courses is an opportunity to increase spatial reasoning skills. What happens when children use coopetition with limited resources to learn from each other and create a shared experience of winning and losing? The Ultimate Tin-Can Fighting Robot League is that sort of experience. The kids team together to create vibrating fighting robots with access to a 3D printer to create a custom identity.
