Innovation is a way of learning at Young Innovators. Our tech-fueled summer camp experience is a perfect blend of digital and physical stimuli.

Indeed, Young Innovators Academy and Valtech are taking our summer camp curriculum to the next level. They are introducing a unique blend of awe-inspiring wilderness adventures and tech-fueled scavenger hunt expeditions.

The Expedition

This week our curriculum expedition brought students to a prehistoric world.

In this scavenger hunt on a trail in Little Big Econ State Forest, Young Innovators will search for hidden stations. They will also be on the lookout for clues. Simultaneously, they will be learning more about dinosaurs that walked the earth long ago.

The recruits traveled to the Econ River Wilderness Area and were each given a field notes pamphlet that prompted them to explore different tech-fueled research stations posted around the area.

Firstly, each student had a token that allowed them to unlock a secret letter code to complete a special assignment. After repeating this investigation at eight separate stations, when put together, the eight-letter clues revealed an exciting surprise.

For this expedition, 60 scientists and recruits went home with a special reward. They also gained a wealth of knowledge about prehistoric creatures. Without a doubt, the experts at Valtech collaborated with the Young Innovators’ team. They imagined, designed, and deployed this unique scavenger hunt experience. Certainly, the experience aims to become an immersive learning experience for young learners for years to come.

Valtech is a global digital agency focused on business transformation a multi-award winning agency that builds connected experiences that improve human lives and make our clients’ businesses grow.
