Kai (11 years old)

Kai is an Under the GUI Academy student in the UN502 class learning about Augmented Reality. This is a prototype of an Augment Reality app Kai is making. The app makes use of the computers cameras and projects a hologram of an image whenever it sees a Vancouver Public Library card. Kai is unsure what the final app is going to look like, but for now he says he just enjoys learning about how to program.

When I was 11 I spent most of my days playing games rather than making them – now kids are creating virtual reality VR apps I could I only dream about when I was their age.

Learn more about our school coding for kids in Vancouver, and Vancouver Island. Kids learn in all technology sectors including Robotics, Engineering, Coding, and Animation.

We also have Tech summer camps happening throughout Vancouver.

Our coding & animation summer camp teaches Python and app development. This is intended for students who have no prior knowledge of Python and is a good introduction to real programming concepts and goes beyond the drag & drop coding interface. At the end of this camp, students will have created their own versions of their favorite apps that they can share online!

Our Robotics summer camp program will teach the basics of Arduinos, Raspberry Pi’s and making electronic circuit prototypes. From blinking LEDs to complex flying robots, this camp will teach students how to connect components on a breadboard and do basic Arduino programming to control them.

Our Engineering Olympics summer camp will introduce students of all ages to the exciting world of Engineering through a full week of competitions and engaging activities. Activities and challenges will include Giant Catapult, High Egg Drop, Popsicle Stick Bridge, Robotic Arm Transporter and more.
