For many kids, technology is just playing games on a phone or tablet. We want kids to think bigger.
Working alongside faculty from Anderson High School and across Austin Independent School District, we supply the latest tech and tech-art tools in an educational and safe yet fun and informal environment where campers can develop a passion for using technology to create and learn.
Each year, our camp will ask children to pretend to be scientists trying to solve a challenge. While doing so, kids won't hear a lecture; they will ask the questions and they will use their imagination (and our tools) to find the answers.
Participants entering grades 3 - 5 will complete activities in each of the following four learning areas. Scouts can apply what they learn towards advancements or Adventures. We will be happy to help match what is covered to any organizations requirements for advancement if you can provide the advancement information to us.
