  3. Immersive activities guided by live, online instructors.
  4. Moderated Virtual Room for youth to engage with the instructor and interact with the other participants.

About Black Rocket: "The magic in every camper comes to life as never before when they are empowered to be as creative as they were all born to be! Black Rocket has twenty years of experience designing camps in the S.T.E.A.M fields.  Every program is powered by the camper’s innate imagination and designed to bring their ideas to life in a fun, hands-on learning environment. From concept to creation students will demonstrate their masterpiece to the world at the end of each week! All Black Rocket programs mirror real-life experiences and the collaborative nature of the design process.  Students will work in pairs or teams for most of the program.”

Black Rocket sends an email the Wednesday prior to class with software instructions. Software must be downloaded in advance. The first class will focus on instruction, not tech support. If you need assistance with tech support please visit blackrocket.com or refer to the appointment link in their email.
