3D Printing & Robotics


3D Printing & Design  provides the skill set students need to get into the wonderful world of 3D modeling, engineering, Computer Aided Design and creating physical products. We use accessible software specifically designed for education, TinkerCAD and Morphi, to explore mathematical concepts, computer skills and physical manufacturing. Students learn how to create designs and how the 3D printing process works. Designs include houses, name-tags, products and so much more!


Robotics is the most unique, knowledgeable and fun dive into robots. Students learn to control The Dash and Dot, Ozobot and Cubelets Robotics through various sensors, components and coding. No prior coding experience necessary! Dash robot responds to voice, navigates objects, dances, and sings! Use apps to create new behaviors for Dash making learning about robot commands easy and fun! Cubelets are robot blocks that make it fast and easy to make your own robot! There’s no wrong way to build with Cubelets, so it is remarkably easy to transform these blocks into brilliant bundles of robotic curiosity. Ozobots are tiny robots we can code with color! Watch as their color sensors guide them through various challenges.


Minecraft & Roblox Coding


This is not your Minecraft available at home! Students will explore new aspects of Minecraft Education, while also learning computer logic and programming! Students Code “Agents,” little minions, that assist them with collecting and building through a language similar to Scratch, but only if coded correctly... Ever increasing challenges and quests are bestowed upon the students, growing problem solving skills, patience and teamwork! With the help of custom worlds, students explore and build different styles of architecture including Roman, Greek, Contemporary, Brutalist and more! Minecraft Architecture Students learn about influential architects such as Ictinus, Frank Lloyd Wright, Zaha Hadid and others.


Roblox Studio is a powerful platform for creating your own games. With drag-and-drop features we can create games quickly, but coding knowledge is required to make something more unique. First we create an Obby, and then move onto more advanced custom projects to build game design, coding, and 3d skills! The only Roblox the kids will play in this class are the games that they make!


Stop Motion, Filmmaking, Garageband


Students experience the magical way stop-motion brings everyday objects and characters to life through its raw power of storytelling. Learn all the techniques important for live action filmmaking - Conceptualizing content, story building, graphic design, audio and video production, unique content creation, YouTube management and much more! Experience fun video techniques like green screening, easy computer effects and more! Staff, with a wealth of music experience, teach students how to use GarageBand to record live music, play music with the GarageBand sounds, pick and choose loops (musical phrases), produce re-mixes and more! Whether you know nothing about music or you practice your instruments every day, GarageBand is the best way to start recording and expanding your musical education. We often compose in GarageBand specifically for our animations and films!


Scratch & Makecode Coding


Dive into video game design using Scratch and MakeCode Coding Platforms! Scratch is familiar to many kids as it’s used in schools nationwide. Scratch makes coding easier and more fun through programming with blocks of code! Without having to worry about exact syntax kids are able to make amazingly imaginative and impressive games in no time!


For older attendees we have some advanced techniques to share.  MakeCode, developed by Microsoft, is also a block based learning platform, specialized in making games! We can also use MakeCode to program sensors, lights and more on tiny interactive computers - MicroBit & Circuit Playground.


Afternoon VR Program

During the afternoon sessions, students will transition to immersive VR STEAM experiences. These VR activities will be a harmonious blend of structured learning guided by our dedicated staff, and freeplay that encourages children to explore, sparking their natural curiosity and fostering independence. The engaging VR-based activities will encompass a wide variety of experiences, as follows:


MasterpieceVR is a VR 3D modeling and sculpting tool that enables children to intuitively generate 3D models and art in a fun, interactive way. By simply using hand controllers in a VR headset, kids can draw, sculpt, and paint in a three-dimensional space, turning their imaginations into virtual reality. With its user-friendly interface, kids can manipulate and interact with their 3D creations, fostering creativity, spatial awareness, and problem-solving skills.


Journey through the cosmos with Titans of Space. This stunning virtual reality experience offers an awe-inspiring tour of our solar system, showcasing the magnificence of planets, moons, asteroids, and other celestial phenomena. As kids virtually traverse through space, they gain an in-depth understanding of the vastness of our universe, the characteristics of different celestial bodies, and the fundamental principles of astronomy. Titans of Space not only instills a profound sense of wonder but also enriches their knowledge in science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics.


Create and destroy on an unimaginable scale while exploring our beautiful cosmos. Universe Sandbox is an awe-inspiring experience in a scientifically-accurate space and gravity simulator.  With unlimited power and unlimited freedom, you can create and explore both fantastical and realistic scenarios. Fly through our solar system, vaporize planets with a giant laser, or hurl stars around with a flick of the wrist. Fly along with New Horizons past Pluto and its moons or explore our neighboring TRAPPIST-1 system and its recently discovered Earth-like planets.  

Google Earth VR.jpg

Unleash the globetrotter within your child with Google Earth VR! This immersive virtual reality program enables kids to explore the four corners of the globe, all without leaving the arcade. From the peak of Mount Everest to the depths of the Grand Canyon, from the bustling streets of New York City to the tranquil waters of the Pacific, your child can travel anywhere and learn about diverse cultures, historical landmarks, geographical wonders, and so much more. Google Earth VR nurtures curiosity and develops knowledge in geography, history, culture, and technology.


Immerse your child in the world of 3D art with Tilt Brush. This groundbreaking VR application provides an exciting platform for kids to paint and draw in three dimensions, transforming their creativity into immersive artworks. With Tilt Brush, the virtual canvas is their playground, enabling them to visualize their ideas in space and time, and ultimately take their artistic skills to new heights. It's a unique blend of art and technology that not only nurtures their creativity, but also enhances their spatial understanding and technical skills.
