Whizzkids Virtual Camps are a combination of live online tuition plus access to the ground breaking Digital Skills Virtual Classroom, which hosts a wide variety of pre-recorded courses. Live classes will be delivered over Zoom. Groups will be limited to 12 children at a time to ensure everyone receives the right level of attention. Live classes will be delivered for 2 hours per day (10am & 12pm).
The pre-recorded lessons are delivered by our full time teachers, whom we have transformed into their avatars in order to be more engaging for children. The platform has 16 courses covering 4 key skill areas, which are essential to becoming a digital master. These are Creativity, Design, Coding and Problem Solving. This online education platform is fully incentivised with badges, trophies, levels, and results based games rewards. Students will have unlimited access to the hundreds of videos, quizzes, challenges for the duration of the camp. See Whizzkids.io for further details on our online academy.
Each week we focus on 2 different areas as listed below. Each camp is designed as a stand alone camp and you can simply pick a topic that appeals. No previous experience is required to do any of the camps but there is progression from week to week if you would like to do a series of courses and get a broad range of digital skills.
With time indoors and out, there will be a healthy mix of action. We are all about having fun with technology. Children aged 8 to 15 will learn web design, animation, video game design & programming, 3D modelling and undertake a host of hi-tech challenges including the Whizzkids Spy Academy. Classes are broken up by age and are suitable for children of all abilities. Those attending are supervised at all times by experienced teachers so you can be sure they will be well looked after.
Everyone will have their own PC and we will supply all other equipment for a hands-on experience that is both educational and entertaining. Whizzkids has delivered its' popular blend of education and entertainment to over 30,000 children across Ireland since 2003. Using top class third level facilities children will be shown how to be creative and have fun with technology. This hi-tech summer camp is truly unique!
