REGISTRATION DEADLINE EXTENDED: 1 JUNE 2019
SKY Camp is an international camp for young makers to be held in the southern port city of Busan, South Korea from 5-8 June 2019. It is organized in collaboration by OneMaker Group (Singapore) and RootPi [also known as BraineryMakers](South Korea) especially for children aged between 10-14 years old. Last year, the SKY Camp was held for the first time in Seoul.
The camp will be structured to emphasize first and foremost character building, followed by the acquisition of skills and knowledge. Having a good attitude trumps it all. The following big ideas serve to guide the overall programme:
Campers will be able to experience design thinking and develop their maker skills through a variety of Design thinking & STEM (science, technology, engineering & mathematics)-styled activities.
