Lori Dunn | Jun 30, 2020

North Central Texas College’s Adult and Continuing Education Division is offering a suite of virtual STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) summer camps from July to August for children ages 8 to 14.  The programs are provided in a partnership with Black Rocket, a national leader in STEM education for children.

Courses will be Monday through Friday, with a live instructor each day, small group coaching, and an online learning community. Each week offers different age appropriate classes in the morning and afternoon for three hours each day. Topics include Video Game Design, Coding, Animation, Minecraft, Roblox, 3D Modeling, Esports, Virtual Reality and more.

Richard Ginn, CEO of Black Rocket, said. “Parents are desperate for help and kids are lonely. After health and the economy, education is the third great need to address in this pandemic. At Black Rocket we are all parents so we get it. We want to help Adult and Continuing Education empower kids to be creative in the summer and help Moms and Dads get a break for a few hours.”
