TALLAHASSEE, Fla.(WTXL) — Instead of just playing videos games, Tallahassee Community College is helping kids build their own! Their virtual design and coding summer camp was launched in partnership with Black Rocket, a national leader in tech education.

The weekly camps are aimed at getting kids ages 8-14 interested in STEM learning. From coding to game design, e-Sports, virtual reality and even learning how to become a YouTube content creator, campers almost forget they’re learning.

“What gauges their interest helps them think twice about it,” said program director Jessica Griffin. “Some of them don’t even think oh this is science or this is math or anything like that because they’re doing something they already like.”

All of the classes are held on zoom and camp registration is open on a weekly basis through August 14.

“They have live instructors that are there with them,” said Griffin. “They’re given assignments and challenges of that nature. And basically, at the end of the week they’ve put it all together and have some type of outcome.”

The camps start at $149 for each week. If you’re in need of financial assistance, please call 850-201-3761.
