StemQuest unplugs campers from the computer screen in this narrative-based program. We have intentionally extracted the wide-array of exhilarating challenges and mysteries from gaming and e-sports and generated a live adventure. Campers will use rovers, bots, drones, and other autonomous creative technology to jump over obstacles, push down walls, lift up boulders, toss energy balls, and navigate through mazes. Teams of campers work together indoors, outdoors and in open-spaced “arenas” throughout the week, utilizing life skills such as: design and systems thinking, collaborative problem solving, curiosity, mindfulness, and imagination to outwit, out-build, and out-smart one another as well as the program instructor, The Wizard.
