YIA Summer Camp

Learning about prehistoric animals

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 by 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 and clues while learning more about dinosaurs that walked the earth long ago.

The new 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 recruits went home with a special reward and a wealth of knowledge about prehistoric creatures.

Without doubt, the experts at Valtech in collaboration with Young Innovators’s team, 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.
