In our Idea Incubator Camps, kids will dive into our three core STEM topics (Coding, Robotics and Minecraft) to propel their ideas, help them create something awesome and realize their full potential.

In Coding, kids will use Scratch and Stencyl to design their own video game and app. 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 day. Coding through a block-based language, Ardublock, kids will get hands-on as they craft their creations.

In our Minecraft foundational day, collaboration and sharing skillsets 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 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.

Day 1: Coding: Code a Video Game with Scratch
Day 2: Coding: Code an App with Stencyl
Day 3: Robotics: Crazy Instruments
Day 4: Minecraft: Collaboration and Design
