Galactic Homesteaders Options

This year, WiloStar3D Academy is offering a two-part camp experience – Galactic Homesteaders and Galactic Gamers!

Regardless of which session you choose (Galactic Homesteaders, Galactic Gamers, or both), each week you will be introduced to a new Astronomy and Physics lesson to help you better understand the universe in which you live. On a daily level, your mornings will be devoted to learning advanced building and scripting in Wiloworlds as you build a collaborative Sci-Fi super city. Then, if you choose to add on the gaming experience, you will continue your journey in the afternoon by participating in Galactic Gamers. In the afternoon session, you will learn valuable skills in science and collaborative gaming and earn high school credit in the process. And yes, middle school students can participate and earn high school credit for this! Read on for more details.

This summer’s game:

From the developer:

Inspired by the adventure and imagination that we love from classic science-fiction, No Man’s Sky presents you with a galaxy to explore, filled with unique planets and lifeforms, and constant danger and action.

In No Man’s Sky, every star is the light of a distant sun, each orbited by planets filled with life, and you can go to any of them you choose. Fly smoothly from deep space to planetary surfaces, with no loading screens, and no limits. In this infinite procedurally generated universe, you’ll discover places and creatures that no other players have seen before – and perhaps never will again.

Interactive Learning

Galactic Homesteaders is a unique interactive online summer camp that is pioneering the use of 3D virtual worlds for students in grades 7-12. Students participating in Galactic Homesteaders summer camp earn a minimum of .5 high school credit for their knowledge gained in scripting, design, astronomy, and physics.

Scripting and Design Skills in 3D Worlds

In our virtual universe called Wiloworlds, students can create stunning virtual worlds by using both primitive shapes to build simple structures or prebuilt assets which they then combine to craft sophisticated designs. With the power of scripting, students can bring their creations to life, adding commands and executing actions that make their virtual world come alive.

Trusted Online Homeschooling Program

Accredited online homeschool classes and homeschooling curriculum that transfers to high school and college.

Well proven evaluation, child support, and parent intercommunication.

Differentiated Learning

Our fully accredited online homeschooling program believes in making individual accommodations to the learning program to best fit the needs of each student. Contact us now to find out how WiloStar3D can help your child succeed.

Design Principles Fostered

As students embark on their virtual world building journey, documentation and collaboration play integral roles in their development as designers and developers. Through the process of documenting their progress in a developer’s journal, students create a valuable resource that they can refer back to in the future. This journal serves as a repository of ideas, solutions to coding challenges, and a record of their creative journey.

Collaboration is key

Collaboration is also a key component of the Galactic Homesteaders program. Students are encouraged to share their progress, screenshots, and ideas with others in the course discussion. By engaging in discussions and attending live class meetings, students have the opportunity to exchange ideas, receive feedback, and gain inspiration from their peers. This collaborative environment fosters a sense of community and support, essential for nurturing creativity and growth.

Great for Gamers

Our programs incorporate stimulating online 3D virtual world development in educational online homeschooling projects – all in a safe, trusted virtual world educational environment.

You can expect the best of respected educational methodology set in a whole new online world for kids who enjoy video games, online role playing and technology.

l

Designer's Journal

Each week, students will have a set of objectives to follow, bringing them closer to their design and development goals. Students read the developer brief, complete the building lab, document their progress, and share their ideas and progress with fellow campers. Staying organized and documenting the journey is crucial. Keeping a developer’s journal is the student’s guide and resource throughout the design process. 

Avatar Crew Members

Ready to blast off to explore new worlds and complete missions for learning? WiloStar students choose a crew member as their unique student avatar to use exclusive to themselves.

Creativity Unleashed

The WiloStar3D Creativity theory means students are meaningfully engaged in creating new immersive learning activities through interaction with others and actively involved in the creative process. Avatars help accomplish this goal.

Interactive Learning

WiloStar students interact in a gamelike environment where they can 'sit' in class, run across misty mountains and fly through the horizons of learning.

Personal Expression

WiloStar3D allows students to explore different facets of their personalities using avatars in a safe educational environment.

Avatars Teach Social Skills

We show students how their own personality traits and behavior effects others' perceptions of identity. This gives students a chance to see that how you "act" within the 3D world can impact how others view you.

New Avatars Added Constantly

WiloStar3D is constantly evolving and changing to adapt to new technology and to improve its educational program for the benefit of students. We also expect this of our students.

Student Avatar Designs

For our more advanced 3D design students, we offer the chance to add their own creations to Wiloworlds.

Role Playing

When you play a role different from your everyday viewpoint, new insight is developed by stepping into another's shoes.

Express your Voice

Students want to express their voice and spirit, and to be able feel safe in their learning environment.

Mod your World

Students complete WiloStar Interactives inside Wiloworlds, a revolutionary immersive learning platform that allows students to mod and build their own worlds and regions.
