What is Augmented Reality (AR)?

Augmented Reality (AR) is the integration of digital information with the user's environment in real time, now being used for everything from catching Pokemon to construction safety & healthcare.

AR Code Camp.

What do kids learn at Blast AR?

>>Fundamentals of AR

We're not saying your kids will be fully-fledged AR experts by the end of this camp, but they'll be well on their way!

>>JavaScript

What do Facebook, Google and YouTube have in common? They're all built on JavaScript, the language of the web! Your child will use this technology to build their game.

>>Creative Thinking

Thinking outside the box is a key skill programmers need and a great life skill in general. This camp will teach your children to be creative and to solve problems.

Spring Code Camps coming soon!
