StemQuest Fortnite extracts the thrills from the video screen and delivers the gaming experience directly into a live setting (without the video screen!). Fortnite has opened up a whole new world of fun for kids and video game enthusiasts, but now it is time to bring that excitement into the physical world of STEM. The Fortnite Island presents campers with a variety of head-to-head challenges where campers will learn to use sophisticated rolling bots, mini foam ball launchers, and jumping drones to simulate the video game battles. Each “Squad” is comprised of a team of campers who work together to establish and defend their “Base” against the other Squads of campers, but beware of the shrinking storm, the Volcano, and Viking Village. The ultimate goal is to earn points, gather resources, and explore new maps and terrains. Code your rolling bot to land on a portal and teleport around the block strategically to catch rival Squads off guard, and establish alliances in order to bring the Counselor, Giant Mech, to its knees.
StemQuest: Fortnite Battle Squads camp is led by Drobots, a Summertimes partner. Drobots’ mission is to inspire students to reduce idle time in front of a computer screen and instead utilize technology in a setting that promotes collaborative project-based learning in a positive educational environment.
