About

Designed for junior high and high school students who want to learn more about how to incorporate cutting-edge fields including virtual reality, artificial intelligence, augmented reality, and podcasting to gamify their stories and bring education to life.

Campers will use Virtual Reality headsets, a podcasting booth, and artificial intelligence programs in addition to learning about careers outside the traditional STEM fields that use these technologies. No previous experience with any of the technology covered in the camp is required.

Extra Good Stuff
