TechPlayzone STEM Camps - Hands On - Hi Tech Fun!
LEGO Mindstorms Robotics, Minecraft, Movie Making, Game Design, and Science.
Camp for kids ages 7 - 17 as they learn how to design, program, problem solve, create, and have fun. TechPlayzone camps have been successful since the Winter of 2005. The very first camp took place at Cimino Elementary. Since that time, hundreds of children have discovered the joy of making computer games, designing mobile apps, creating circuits, building robots, and programming microprocessors. TechPlayzone led the charge with helping kids in the Brandon community discover that science rocks!
