Where Kids Come to Ideate and Turn Their Ideas Into a Reality

With our guidance + access to cutting-edge tools and technology, every child can confidently turn their vision into a tangible product by the end of the week.

Along the way, they'll develop critical thinking practice a ton of new skills, and learn inquiry-based design thinking.

At BitSpace, I get to use tools that I never would've been able to

(Tools) like laser cutters, 3D printers, coding and virtual reality. That would've never been provided at school for me so I'm very grateful for that.

And I think it's super chill to just to hang out with the guides, talk to other people and just like work on a project for a few hours. It's so relieving from being at home and being cooped up inside the house."

—Drew, student

Empower your child with skills that will help them survive THRIVE in an AI-led environment

With Artificial Intelligence gradually replacing jobs, soft skills like creativity have become 10x more valuable because they CANNOT be replicated.

"Even though AI can perform complex calculations and analyses, soft skills are far more difficult to replicate in a machine."

What You'll LOVE About This Year's BitSpace Summer Camp

We know how kids get "no" in school all the time, so we're leaving "themes" behind and letting your camper decide what to create.

1:5 (or Less) Guide-to-Camper Ratio

Campers get more individual attention from expert guides and plenty of time to explore new ideas and authentic design experiences.

21st-Century Skills Development

Kids develop essential skills that will help them thrive in a turbulent job market: Communication, Collaboration, Critical Thinking, and Creative Thinking.

State-of-the-art tools & technology

Students get hands-on access to our 3D printers,  programmable electronics, virtual reality integration, and so much more to prototype their idea before building them.

Traditional Woodworking Training

We teach our students basic woodworking skills to help them build their ideas and grow confident with using power tools.

Problem-Solving Opportunities

Students sharpen their ability to solve sophisticated problems in meaningful ways by engaging in college-level critical thinking.

Valuable Life Skills Development

Gain time management skills, apply persistence and determination, and showcase communication skills with end-of-the week presentations!
