Unity Game Development System and Oculus Rift (Virtual Reality Glasses)
Unity Game Development System is used by professionals to make some of the most popular games in history.
If you have a young person who wants to learn about game design and programming, why not use what the pros use? This software is not trivial to learn, but we have the expertise to get your camper started and the Oculus Rift to take them into the future. The Oculus Rift is a virtual reality headset that makes you feel immersed into virtual world. It really is a game changer, and you cannot buy it in stores. We have it and your camper will be able to experience it as they make a game using the Unity Game Development System. Please note: your camper must be 13 to use the Oculus Rift as per recommendations by Oculus VR.
Cyber security seems to be in the news regularly these days with hackers launching attacks on businesses and governments across the world. Not surprisingly the hottest career today is in cyber security.
Our campers will learn about this field and how to protect themselves and their families on the Internet. We learn best by doing, so our campers will setup their own networks using Raspberry Pi computers.( each camper will receive a Raspberry Pi computer ) Students will then divide into teams where they will attempt to “hack each others’ network” and try to prevent from being hacked. This will be an exciting fun camp that could lead to an exciting career. Campers do not need prior experience in cyber security.
Racing Drones - Flying and racing R/C Airplanes & quadcopters
Welcome to the Flight Camp of the 21st century.
From quadcopters to aerial drones to hover boards, we use the latest technology to explore all things flight using the old-school method of learning by doing. Campers will build and program model airplanes, quadcopters, and rockets as they learn engineering and physics principles. They will get a chance to apply these skills as they use FPV (First-Person-View) camera to pilot their crafts along a racing course. (Imagine flying like a super hero is the best way to describe it.) Along with developing their own skills to build model airplanes and rockets, this program gives campers the confidence to continue embracing new, innovative technology in this fast-paced field. There exists a serious pilot shortage in the US and we hope this camp will inspire the next generation of pilots and astronauts.
