December 10, 2015, Full Sail University is proud to announce the unveiling of Full Sail Labs, an educational experience designed for students from 1st to 12th grades with a focus on technology, science, art and media. A formal ribbon-cutting ceremony will be held on December 11 at the state-of-the-art facility located in Winter Park, FL.
Developed by Full Sail University with the goal of creating an engaging and open learning environment that allows children and teens to explore creativity through storytelling, art, and technology, Full Sail Labs provides young creative talent with the knowledge to become digital content creators. Through this experience, young students have the opportunity to explore the techniques used for filmmaking, coding, animation, gaming, robotics, and much more in a fun and collaborative environment.
“Today’s students discover and understand technology at a very young age. We believe Full Sail Labs allows these students the chance to explore their interests and express themselves through the power of technology sooner than ever before,” said Luis Garcia, Vice President, Full Sail University. “We are thrilled to see what children can create when supported by knowledge and cutting-edge tools.”
Housed within a 4800 square foot facility adjacent to Full Sail University’s campus, this state-of-the-art educational space fosters exploration, creativity, collaboration and fun. The facility contains fully equipped innovative and engaging educational areas including a multi-purpose lab that can be transformed for young students to participate in various digital creative projects. It also features a lounge area for parents, allowing them to observe, in addition to homework stations for siblings.
Full Sail Labs originally launched in May 2015 offering eleven 1-week Summer Camps. Over 170 campers participated in the 2015 Summer Camp sessions for an exciting week of creation where each child explored the process of filmmaking, gaming, music, or robotics.
In September, the Full Sail Labs 2015–2016 School-Year Program began, providing a technology-driven enrichment program in the after-school hours and Saturdays. During that same month, Full Sail Labs partnered with One School of The Arts, a private school in Longwood, FL, and facilitated a 2-week program for their high school students at the Full Sail Labs Winter Park-based facility. In October, a partnership with Windermere Preparatory School began, which now provides a customized Full Sail Labs program and presence on their campus.
Last month Full Sail Labs further expanded by offering a specially designed program for the Central Florida home-school community, as well as launching an Electronic Music Production and Game Design programs specifically for teenagers.
On December 11, a formal ribbon-cutting ceremony will be held at the state-of-the-art facility located in Winter Park, FL. Members of the community are invited to attend this event featuring tours, hands-on demonstrations, and Q&A sessions with Full Sail Labs instructors. Like other summer camps and after-school opportunities, the training provided at Full Sail Labs is for personal enrichment and is not transferable or accredited.
