Silicon Valley Arranges for Augmented Reality Summer Camp for Children

Children who are six years or above, or are teenagers in schools and have interest in science or STEAM, engineering, technology, math and art can take a part in this AR summer comic and art camp. Arranged by Integem, this camp goes on for two weeks and is for the kids who are curious enough to know, but might not have enough knowledge about technology and computers.

Situated in Northern California, the location of this tech summer camp is none other than in Silicon Valley. Happening in one of the areas which have the best leading-edge innovation, the Holographic AR Camp is run by Integem. Here the kids are taught to create their own digital cartoons and comics, as well as, learning how to sharpen their computer skills.

In today’s world, augmented reality is used in storytelling in digital fairytales, along with gaming with everybody’s favorite cartoons, for franchise movie extras, for watching Grammy-winning musicians dance and for trying and buying shoes. The impeccable future of augmented reality’s success is basically in our hands, and hence the kids are also introduced to this advanced form of technology early in their lives.

Dr. Eliza Du, Integem’s CEO, has said in the company’s press release that each student in the camp will be taught how to make their own Holographic AR comic or cartoon movie by using their own skills. The Holographic AR camp functions in such a way that it enables each kid the chance to learn things at his own pace. It is appropriate for everyone, starting from a novice kid with no computer skill to nerdy programmers.

Augmented reality already has a lot of uses in science and arts. This is why tech-savvy parents who already thrive with a stylus or a marker in their hand or know well how to operate a tablet, keyboard or a computer will definitely want to get their kids enrolled in such an advanced summer camp.
This camp takes the help of iCreator which enables the kids to transform their creative ideas into augmented reality art. It helps to bring imaginative and kid-friendly environments to the real world with the help of technology. The kids have the liberty to bring their own computers or can use the ones available on the campus.

The campers can create wacky and funny games with the help of their instructors. There is one instructor for every eight kids. The games are like digging games where the player has to go inside a cave and look for gems and alien games which teach the students to stay away from detention. There are even customized adventure games where the players choose between a vehicle or a canoe, resulting in two different outcomes.

Children working on 2D holographic AR might want to take that as a career option in future. They might get so talented as to create a famous something for people all over the world to download it.
