STEM Camps for Kids

Mini MakerKids PA Days

Grades 1-2

Mini MakerKids introduces kids in grades 1 and 2 to our core technology topics: Coding, Robotics, and Minecraft. At our Mini MakerKids camp, your child gets to work on a variety of projects throughout the day in small groups. They will design their own video game, create robotic inventions, explore the 3D design world of Minecraft, and do design and experimentation. Your child will build on the skills they’ve learned throughout the day, coming out of camp with transferable technical skills and social skills.

The cross-discipline exposure puts a focus on valuable skills and allows kids to see real progress as their abilities grow. Throughout the day, all of their projects tie back to the theme to reinforce the importance of interconnectivity in technology.

Skills Learned: Social Skills, Confidence, Design, Problem-solving, Game Design, Electronics and Planning

Coding is an important language to learn. With the demand for STEM workers continuing to increase, learning coding from an early age is a sure way to gain an advantage in today’s competitive career world. Kids code games, websites and more. They learn how computers work, exercise creativity by coming up with ideas for how their project will look and feel, and build resilience and perseverance when trouble-shooting their code. Learn coding in this one day camp session! Kids will learn to code an video game.

Skills Learned: Resilience, Confidence, Internet Safety, Logic, Game Design, Beta-Testing

Kids get to see the results of their code right before their eyes. They realize that they can make things that others can use. Kids exercise creativity by developing project ideas, learn to design projects for specific user needs, and give and receive feedback on their designs. Kids will use microcontrollers to learn about robotics, electronics, and circuits while building robotics creations.

Skills Learned: Self-Confidence, Creativity, Teamwork, Coding, Electronics, Math, Reading, Writing, Design

Minecraft Camps for Kids

Minecraft PA Days

Grades 3-5 and 6-8

We use the incredibly popular game Minecraft (now a mandatory school subject in Finland) as a medium to help kids build transferable skills such as coding, electronics, 3D design, servers, and more. We leverage kids’ interest in Minecraft as a gateway to introduce them to other STEM topics such as Robotics and Coding. Minecraft is also a great medium for teaching positive netizen skills and communication skills. Practice design and creation in Minecraft in this one day camp session, where kids will work together to plan and build a Minecraft world! Kids will design and build in the Minecraft world, while collaborating with new friends to make amazing digital creations.
