Tallahassee Community College is launching a virtual design and coding summer camp powered by Black Rocket, a national leader in tech-education. The weekly camps are aimed to launch the creativity of kids ages 8-14. There are a host of fun, interactive camps that range from coding, game design, eSports, virtual reality, YouTube content creator and more.
“We’re so excited to launch one of the most sought-after virtual camps around,” said Kimberly A. Moore, VP for Workforce Innovation and TCC2WORK. “The fact that kids are already captivated with virtual reality and parents are interested in their kids being exposed to STEM makes it a win-win for all involved.”
Parents can choose a single camp or create a mix of multiple camp topics. To make it easy, the registration process is automated. However, assistance can be provided if needed. The camp registration is open now with weekly camps taking place until August 14.
In addition to the camps being offered virtually, camp participants can expect high level engagement in each session led by high energy camp instructors in LIVE classes! Students will also benefit from small group breakout sessions where questions can be asked and answered while feeding their curiosity for learning. The camps start at $149.
Included is a short list of the most researched camp programs. The full list can be accessed from the registration page.
