High school students from any location may participate in our year-round learning experience. Students will benefit by gaining tangible technology skills, beginning with exposure to the virtual reality domain, and – more importantly – developing the essential “soft skills” that are valued by prospective employers.
Each student will learn Open Simulator, which includes the basics to acclimate them to our virtual reality technologies and communication platform. All projects are team-based, which allows students to work with and learn from their peers. Peer mentors, recruited from the top tier of past sessions, will provide additional technical support. The program is also part-time and flexible.
The program is broken into two different tracks – a basic track and an advanced track. There are two 5-week sessions offered this for the basic track and one 10-week session for the advanced track.
- Basic Track Two 5-week sessions Dates: The first session: Monday, June 4th - Friday, July 6th. The second session: Monday, July 9th - Friday, August 10th
- Advanced Track Dates: Monday, June 4th - Friday, Aug 10th
Portfolio of Projects
- Telepresence robotics
- Cybersecurity - a project-based approach to future cyber-security certification will be explored
- 3D Printed "PhoneBOTs"
- Wearable Technologies - develop wearable technologies such as the Internet of Things demonstrators
- Virtual Reality – using OpenSim, students may develop virtual reality projects for markets, propose layouts for physical spaces, training facilities or interactive exhibits
"The experience was incredible, and I want to thank you (again) for that."
"The experience was incredible, and I want to thank you (again) for that. Since I liked the project so much, I've decided to study Computer Science as my career. I discovered that I like to create new things with code. The Cyber Camp was an eye-opening experience, and I can't wait to start my studies."
“I will always remember and be grateful of this experience”
"My experience at Discovery Lab Global was unlike anything I have ever experienced before. There were days I hated it. But then there were days I was in awe of my accomplishments. I am not a computer science major - so this did not come easy to me. It was challenging and I failed (which I am not used to doing), but in my failure I succeeded. I believe that this experience allowed my resume to stand out and helped me get into the university of my choice. I will always remember and be grateful for this experience."
