Skyrock online camps are designed to be engaging, entertaining, and educational while requiring little-to-no help from parents. Kids receive a big box containing all the project materials they need so they can use their hands while learning from pro STEAM teachers every day!
“Skyrock is on a mission to discover, nurture, and unleash the next generation of game changing inventors in the world. Today we’re here to introduce you to live and online STEAM Summer Camp.
Hands on STEAM learning is perfect for learning independently at home since the kids get to work in 3D with physical things instead of just working with 2D pixels and pages. Kids can build knowledge by making and experimenting instead of just listening and watching. However, it’s also the most challenging. It requires a lot of material preparation, some basic tools, and support with troubleshooting small problems. To overcome this, our team of designers, engineers, and educators have reimagined digital learning.
"Jayden and Ethan moved to Taiwan from San Francisco only a year ago. Skyrock was influential in developing their curiosity and exposing them to new ways of thinking—giving them the eagerness to call Taiwan their new, friendly home."
"Since my kids go to all Chinese language schools during the days, we really love Skyrock Projects for clubs and camps because the kids can learn new skills (inventing, designing, robotics, coding) all in English with similar aged kids."

There will be a thorough onboarding email that uses video to inform parents of what they need to do before their child’s camp begins. It’s simply a matter of logging into the course platform and selecting the right packet from the materials that we send to you in one big box for the whole camp. We will also include a bonus activity for helping your child get familiar with the course platform.
Beyond this, parents can help by holding their children accountable for following the schedule that we set and checking-off every item on their daily checklist after each session.

However, students also have access to each camp course and its digital resources + pre recorded videos for three months after their camp.
Skyrock continues to follow government guidelines and the Taiwan CDC.
We are currently unclear on how COVID-19 will affect our operations in July and August, but we reassure Skyrockers that we will accommodate any credit if and when they choose to book an online summer camp (or super summer camp) for their kids. Until the government provides any longer-term directives, we will update each camp session with the status of their camp two weeks before camp is meant to begin. As we anticipate an update on any changes in Taiwan’s nation-wide level 3 pandemic response on June 28th, Skyrock will contact campers on the status of July 5th - July 16 camps by June 21st.
