The magic in every student comes to life as never before when they are empowered to be as creative as they were born to be! Black Rocket has twenty years of experience designing courses in the S.T.E.A.M. fields. Every camp is powered by the student’s innate imagination and designed to bring their ideas to life in a fun, hands-on learning environment. All Black Rocket camps mirror real-life experiences and the collaborative nature of the design process. Students will work in pairs or teams for in-room camps. Online camps are available as well and provide a more independent experience, but with an emphasis on peer-to-peer feedback to enhance the creative process.
