Which materials or items does my kid need to attend? 

They will need a device to access the online lessons (tablet, computer or phone), batteries and basic stationery including: Pencils, Eraser, Ruler, Scissors, and Colors. Markers and Glue stick would be helpful for their extended challenge projects.

4–6 year olds:
Students need basic stationery: Pencils, coloring pencils or crayons, erasers, scissors, tape, and a glue stick. A hole punch would be very helpful, but not necessary.  

Are classes LIVE? Do kids need to log in at specific times? 

Daily sessions have Zoom check-ins hosted by a live instructor. Kids should log-in between 9am-12pm for morning session and 1pm-4pm for afternoon session.There are times for independent course taking and hands-on making, and also scheduled live sessions with the teacher and rest of the class.

For our daily schedule, scroll to our "Kids Follow A Simple Daily Schedule" section.

4-6 year olds:
There will be a 10–15-minute homeroom check-in at the start of the daily class, and again at the end of the sessions. This will be with their teacher and their classmates. The children will watch the instructional videos and complete the hands-on tasks throughout the class. If needed, they can continue to work on their projects after the final check in of the day.

Will kids get help from actual teachers? 

Yes, kids will be assigned to a cohort of up to 12 kids that will have a designated teacher for the camp. The teacher will check-in with everyone at the beginning of the class, for project assembly assistance, for science lessons and guided workbook review.

Online Camp Cancellation Policy

If a parent wishes to cancel or postpone a camp booking for their own personal reasons, they can do so up to two weeks in advance of the start date of the camp and receive 100% of their balance in Skyrock Credit. Summer Camp changes can be made up to one week in advance of the camp start date, subject to availability, at no extra charge.

Is there a certain level of English required to participate in these camps? Do you have a Chinese version of the camp? 

We have two categories of classes:
1) English for kids with intermediate+ English abilities
2) English for kids with beginners English but with a bilingual teachers who will switch between English and Chinese.

4-6 year olds:
Students do not need to be able to read and write. Caregivers should help them to access the materials they need.

How much knowledge or experience do kids need to join this class?

Kids should be able to navigate a computer or tablet device independently and read and communicate in very basic English. All content is created to be developmentally appropriate for the age groups.

What is required of parents during this camp – before, during, and after the course?

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.

4-6 year olds:
Caregivers are expected to help the children access the class and the materials. As the children are very young, they may require supervision or help when cutting out projects, this is particularly the case for our youngest students. Caregivers can also encourage and support their children’s effort and creativity throughout the day.

Which grade group should I choose—current or after summer?

Choose the grade group they will enter after summer, in the fall.

Is Skyrock for both girls and boys?

All Skyrock camps and courses are suitable for kids of any and all genders.

How exactly does the 2 week online camps work? 

The online camp runs through Monday to Friday for 2+ weeks in either morning or afternoon sessions. Sessions are from 9AM to 12PM or 1PM to 4PM.

Each session, students join a group of up to 12 kids to follow the lesson together with a designated teacher. The teacher will be imparting Live STEAM lessons and ensuring that kids are completing all of their tasks and projects.

The online course will also include pre-recorded content, a printed workbook, and materials to complete the STEAM projects.

4-6 year olds:
The lessons are structured to enable younger students to work on their projects after watching the instructional videos. We will have a homeroom check-in at the start of the class that enables the students to meet up with their classmates and teacher. The teacher will tell the children what to expect in the videos and to check that they have all the items they need for the day’s tasks. Then the children are expected to watch the instructional videos and complete the projects. If needed they can pause, rewind and re-watch the videos. Caregivers may also watch these videos and assist the children if necessary. It is not expected that the children always complete the daily project by the end of the lesson as they may wish to work on some tasks for longer. At the end of the class there will be a second homeroom check-in where the children can show their work to their teacher and the class. This time is also used by the teacher to ask questions to the students based on what they have learned in the class today.

Do kids take classes at home?

Yes, kids will access the camp from their own home.

Does it matter which time zone I'm in?

Our time zone is Taipei Standard Time ( GMT+8 ) Students joining from outside of Taiwan will need to adjust their schedules accordingly. However, students also have access to each camp course and its digital resources + pre recorded videos for three months after their camp.
