A Closer Look at Amped Virtual Reality STEM Camp

Sign up for Intro to Technology: 3D Printing, Coding, Robotics, and more! this Summer!

Amped Virtual Reality is offering hands-on, Intro to Technology (STEM) Summer Camps focused on educational play where kids have fun while doing projects, gaining real world experience, and building confidence while learning to work together.

If only you could speak to the children (and parents) who participated last year! These kids made friends, had a blast, and gained confidence with STEM subjects (3D printing, coding, robotics, electronics, and educational VR) in a safe, clean environment.

The kids complete a group project each week - like 3D printing a Mandolorian helmet!

Build Something Amazing at Amped Reality's Intro to Technology Camp

This program is for ages 8-13 regardless of experience in these STEM areas: 3D printing, coding, robotics, electronics, and educational VR!

We strive to offer opportunities to work together in groups and allow campers to be creative, experiment, build knowledge, and grow. Much of what we do is hands-on, developing crucial fine motor skills.

We also give children freedom to select some of what they want to learn.

The Battle bots at the end of camp are a favorite where the children amaze us with the modifications they make to their bots to be able to compete better, and the cheering couldn’t be louder!

For older children, we can even have them design a part on the computer (like a shield) that we 3D print and attach to the robots.

Additionally, Virtual Reality education is immersive and much more memorable than other learning methods. For example, kids can even learn about electronics WHILE INSIDE MINECRAFT by using VR technology!

Plan on Intro to Technology: 3D Printing, Coding, Robotics, and more!

On a typical day, the children will arrive and play VR together - crucial for making friends. They will often get into Minecraft and work on building something amazing together.

We have relationship building activities in the beginning of the week, and the (awesome) instructor will introduce them to the weekly project.

Then, we strive to provide a choice of topics to work on from one of these areas so the child can choose the topic that they prefer the most: 3D printing, coding, robotics, electronics, and educational VR.

There is instruction and hands-on work, and the children get plenty of assistance because of our small camp size.

The children work on STEM activities for 1.5 hours (which is usually when they need a break anyway), and then finish up with another 30 minutes of fun VR.

The children make friends and have a BLAST in a safe, clean environment. Children are grouped by age and skill level.

There is a ticket/prize system that keeps the kids focused on completing projects and learning as much as they can while helping resolve any behavior challenges.

This camp costs $250 for 5 days (Mon-Fri) for 3 hours per day. Available every morning 9-12, but some afternoon camps (12-3) are available, too. If the week is not full, children can participate for individual days or partial weeks for $55/day.
