What are the students going to be doing?
The curriculum is designed to engage students where they are. Students will learn to create content and become storytellers. We focus on imagination, exploration, and creativity. Storytelling is a critical component of digital content creation that is often overlooked when teaching technology and art. At Full Sail Labs we incorporate it into everything we teach.
What will my child learn?
They will learn how to use digital devices (tools and software) with the goal of creating their own media through the use of storytelling, art, and technology.
How will this program help my child?
Nowadays your child has access to a wide variety of technology and is well versed with using it. At Full Sail Labs, he/she will engage, think, and create with knowledgeable facilitators. The main goal of Full Sail Labs is fostering the imagination of learners and providing an outlet where they go from being passive content consumers into engaged content creators.
Is there a certificate at the end?
There are no prerequisites to participate in Full Sail Labs. The training provided is for personal enrichment and is not transferable or accredited.
What is the instructor/student ratio?
There is a 1:10 instructor to student ratio. Our labs hold a maximum of 24 students for optimal learning, although some labs have fewer students. Since groups will be from 10 to 20 there will always be two instructors to teach and assist in project development for all the kids in the lab.
What does my child need to bring/not bring?
The only thing they need to bring is their creative juices and enthusiasm! Our lab environments are equipped with everything our students need to develop their creative projects.
What is the dress code?
For boys: sleeved shirts and pants, jeans, or shorts are recommended.
For girls: sleeved shirts, skirts, dresses, skorts, or shorts (all with appropriate length), capris, pants, or jeans. Sport and casual shoes and sandals are recommended.
Can I GET STARTED online?
Yes, click here.
How do I pay?
Clicking on the register tab will take you to the Information Form and payment options.
Do I need to have technology equipment?
No, all equipment is provided in the Lab.
Can my child be in the same class with a friend?
Students that want to be in the same session need to sign up at the same times. You can verify that there are enough remaining spaces available for both of them. Because the registration process is online, we can’t guarantee friends will be in the same session.
Can I stay and watch?
Absolutely! We have a great environment for you to sit down and watch the lab. You’ll be able to see your child through the glass, or if you just want to relax and wait, you can sit down and talk with other parents.
What happens if my child arrives late one day?
Our labs include lots of activities and tasks that are to be completed in teams. Thus, we recommend that our students arrive to their labs on time so that they have enough time to complete their projects. We understand that at times life happens, so in the case that your child is late one day, we’ll incorporate him or her into the lab in the most seamless way possible.
Is Full Sail Labs part of Full Sail University?
Full Sail Labs was designed by Full Sail University and operates on the same campus. Because of that, it benefits from the same security protocol, such as an on-site campus security team and 24-hour surveillance. However, the Full Sail Labs facility has its own building with a learning environment designed for children and their parents.
