2018-19 PBC School Holiday Schedule
What is Digi-Camp?
It seems like school holidays and teacher work days occur a lot. What are parents to do with their children on those days?
For each one of those days we offer tutoring in 21st century skills and tools to prepare your children for college and careers in technology and creative digital arts. We offer tutoring sessions in the following areas:
Maker and Fabrication - 3D printing, screenprinting, design for our laser cutter and more.
Computer Coding - Video game design and programming, coding for art and music, and even coding for 3D printing and cutting.
Robotics - Lego and VexIQ robotics to include coding and building for real problem solving.
Minecraft - We teach your children to use Minecraft for creative design and coding, as well as cooperative challenges on our in-house servers. Our use of Minecraft is NOT a free-for-all. We use it for educational purposes.
- Session hours are 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
- If you would like to register for a partial day session , please email email@example.com for details.
- Extended hours are offered from 7:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at additional cost.
- Students pack and bring lunch & snacks.
- We are located on Federal Highway, just north of Yamato Road in Boca Raton.
- Prices will increase as dates approach. Register early for the best pricing.
We understand when you're working how hard it is to drop off and pick up your children in only a few hours, so we offer a full day tutoring experience. It's worth stating that we aren't a day camp or a babysitting service. We put 21st century technology and tools in your children's hands. We teach because we are teachers.
