Virtual Spring Courses for Kids Offered by Kids on Campus and Black Rocket

Kids on Campus Online Programs

Kids on Campus (KOC) has partnered with Black Rocket, an online educational provider for kids, to deliver virtual classes starting as early as next week. These courses offer kids a unique virtual enrichment experience where they can learn more about coding while connecting with friends. The best part is that the online courses are a sample of the most popular KOC summer courses. So if your kids enjoy their spring course, they can explore their interests further in courses this summer!

Live coaches will instruct kids through two courses: Coding Sampler, offered from April 6 – 30, and Game Design Sampler, offered May 4 – 30. The Coding Sampler will cover basics such as HTML, CSS, and Javascript while the Game Design Sampler tackles Roblox, Streaming, and 2-D/3-D game design. Each course is packed with over 20 hours of engaging online activities.

For kids who would prefer to learn at their own pace, KOC and Black Rocket are also offering an interactive self-guided virtual reality course where students can learn how to create a virtual reality game.

To provide an opportunity for kids to stay connected and make new friends, every day at 4 p.m. Black Rocket will host an open play eSports competition that’s safe and kid-friendly. Throughout the month of April, virtual open houses will also be held every Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. for families who want to know more about KOC courses that are jointly offered with Black Rocket.

Families interested in enrolling in the Coding Sampler, Game Sampler and virtual reality courses need to use the code HOWARD while registering. Check out all the great virtual opportunities KOC and Black Rocket have to offer: https://blackrocket.com/online.
