The 20,000 square-foot “Gym” houses extensive equipment and infrastructure for robotics, machinery, engineering and Esports.

Fit for large groups, the Gym’s dedicated space includes meeting areas for teams, workshop and storage spaces, and full-sized competition and practice fields for robotics and gaming sports.

Camp Workshops

Johnson STEM “Gym”
Partnering with the Johnson STEM Activity Center, the Digital Learners to Leader’s summer camp program offers three project-based summer workshops in Coding, Makerspaces, and Esports, connecting students to the latest technology in Esports and Robotics/Prototyping, and allows students who have had limited access to computers and other technologies the opportunity to participate along with those who have had more advanced digital skills. Each student will pick one workshop for the 5 day camp (first come, first served). Breakfast, Lunch, and snacks provided!

Coding (Full)

From self-driving cars, to robot-assisted surgery, to social media, computer science is revolutionizing every aspect of our lives. Build a foundation in basic programming and help lead innovation in computer sciences.

Makerspace – (Full)

Build, craft, and innovate by your own design. Makerspaces combine manufacturing equipment, community knowledge, and education to create works that wouldn’t be possible working alone.

Esports (Full)
