How long has Rocks and Robots summer day camp been around?
Rocks and Robots has been offering programs to students of all ages since 2002.
What are the qualifications of your staff?
During each week of camp both of the owner of the camp (George Albercook Ph.D.) is present either teaching or supervising. George in an original founder of Rock and Robots and have over 20 years of experience teaching course from elementary school to the graduate level. In order to keep our student to teacher ratios low we may hire additional teachers. Additional teachers are typically also teachers or are studying to be teachers or have similar experience. We occasionally have returning camper helping out but they do not count in the student to teacher ratio.
What is the student to teacher ratio?
There are a maximum of 8-12 students per teacher. Often each teachers will have only four pairs of students. At times there are even fewer. We love doing this because it allows us to encourage and support individual creativity as well as group skills.
How do you transport the campers?
We take field trips at up to twice a week. Transportation either occurs in late model rented vans that are inspected daily, or school buses that are driven by licensed bus drivers.
Are prerequisites needed?
No experience is necessary. If your camper has experience we do have a variety of experience levels in each course and try to individualize our program to the needs of each student. If you have specific questions feel free to call.
What classes should my child take?
Our programs and classes change often. If you have questions regarding which class would best fit your child's needs, don't hesitate to call or email us and we can help answer all of your questions.
