Robotics with VEX IQ (ages 8-12): Codename Bots is an introduction to robotics where students are  tasked with designing, building and programming a robot to play with other teams in a game-based engineering challenge.  STEM concepts including thinking scientifically, using the engineering design process and problem-solving will be experienced in camp. In addition, students will test their ideas and learn lifelong skills in teamwork, leadership, communications and more. June 28th – July 2nd, 9am-12pm

Day of Play (ages 6-8): Students will be challenged with a series of games and activities designed for fun and learning. Gravity will be challenged, physics will be studied as students build, innovate and create using the engineering design process.  June 28th – July 2nd, 9am-12pm, & July 26th-30th, 1pm-4pm

Mad Scientist (ages 6-12):  Explore Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math through a series of interactive experiments.

A new kind of camp, for Albuquerque’s superstar kids

From one parent to another,

Our kids camp options are something that is near and dear to me.  As a computer engineer by education and a creative coder at heart, it has always been our mission to incorporate STEAM education into our product offerings, and as a dad it is of the utmost importance that our camps be educational, active and safe. With Codename: PLAY, and Codename: BOTS, we bring all of the parts of what we do, from playing to technology to great food offerings, into a cohesive half day camp for kids ages 6-12 years old.

Everything we do is based on code and the use of technology to build great experiences.  We are excited to share some of our knowledge and excitement for this modern art in this inaugural camp offering.  Of course, kids will play, laugh and eat along the way in our sanitized and socially-distanced space.  The safety of your kids, our staff and everyone in between is our primary focus in this critical time.

See you then,
