Summers are usually a laid-back time for having fun with friends and family. However, the definition of fun has progressed and evolved over the years. Gone are the days when children would simply go out in the scorching sun and play their hearts out, forgetting to even eat properly. 

Nowadays, with the upsurge of technology and so many learning opportunities on offer, parents want their children to indulge in fun-learning activities that would boost the chances of a better career. 

The pandemic has forced the world to turn towards virtual platforms for all connections and communications. Virtual STEM summer camps are one of the best ways for a child to engage in learning something futuristic as well as acquire valuable skills such as problem-solving, communication, teamwork, and decision making. 

Many summer tech camps are going around making it very convenient and easy for parents to enroll their children in one of them. MoonCamp is one such online tech summer camp offered by Moonshot Jr.

Now that you have an overview of MoonCamp, let’s move further and discuss in detail the 5 reasons why MoonCamp is a great virtual summer camp for your child.

1. Entrepreneurial Mindset

In today’s world, the importance of an entrepreneurial mindset is unmatched. Considering the uprise in challenges and lack of opportunities, children of today’s generation cannot simply rely on their academic success. Having an entrepreneurial mindset now accounts for life-skill, and MoonCamp helps your child achieve just that. 

Can a child be an entrepreneur? The answer is an absolute yes. Children enrolled in MoonCamp will have once in a lifetime experience with experts and will boast of an entrepreneurial skill set for success in both personal and professional life. 

They will be able to learn various skills such as resilience, self-dependency, confidence and enthusiasm which leads to a dosage of happiness. With an entrepreneurial mindset, one is more likely to take up challenges and opportunities and even risks whenever required. 

Enthusiasm is another trait that leads to more social interaction and doesn’t allow one to feel disappointed very quickly. It can help create more opportunities and build healthy relationships in the workplace. If a child is passionate and curious enough, he will somehow manage to find his own path. That’s entrepreneurialism in a nutshell.

2. Future-demand Forecast

Creativity, communication, leadership, problem-solving, and critical thinking are some of the essential skills that have a high future-demand forecast. The introduction of Large-Scale AI and automation has completely changed the employment sector. 

In larger parts of the world, they have already started to replace humans for most repetitive tasks. This is where MoonCamp will help children learn future-proof skills by connecting with peers from across borders and get mentored by experts in technological fields. It is not only important to nourish the present of the children, but also secure their future and get them prepared for all kinds of challenges.

It is your child’s time to learn future tech in the most fun way. Here is what you will learn in our sessions – 

  • Arduino and Raspberry Pi 
  • Coding 
  • Sensors 
  • Home automation 
  • Robotics
  • E-commerce

3. Hands-on Learning with DIY Kits

MoonCamp provides a hands-on learning experience to all the children. Moonshot Jr has a unique way of approaching learning. Moonshot Jr wants to teach children through experience rather than mere theoretical knowledge. 

MoonCamp offers a stimulating teaching method to enlighten students with skills and knowledge, varying from project management to assertiveness. The education model followed in MoonCamp bestows hands-on learning with DIY Kits. Children will not only be able to get a great chunk of knowledge that will keep on serving them in future but acquire great technical and other skills with the first-hand experience. 

Moonshot Jr kits like the Embedded Learner Board and Moonpreneur are included for experiential learning. MoonCamp follows a real-world approach to technology and provides futuristic streams, to boost academics with live classes, breakout rooms, group projects, game sessions, and more. 

Learn video creation and eCommerce for additional skill development- the two important skills for entrepreneurs. Moreover, build your business skills through our Moonpreneur board game and learn through other games, exercises, and value-addition sessions.

4. Global Exposure

Globalizing the classroom is beneficial because it connects students with experts, provides them with an opportunity for cooperative learning and raises multicultural awareness. The benefit of online classrooms is evident as they are very inexpensive in comparison to making international trips and they also give extremely productive results. 

It is very easy to bring together students from different countries to connect via the internet. The outreach potential of a global classroom program is huge. Video conferences, online groups, online courses and providing study material are some ways to create a global classroom through the internet. 

Global classrooms expose students to international and multicultural experiences that enhance their academic performance. Take for example Moonshot Junior’s Innovator Program that has students from all over the world. Moonshot Junior brings these students together under one umbrella,  where they not only learn about futuristic streams but also interact with students from different countries and learn about them and their cultures.
