Young Explorers Workshops

Young Explorers Workshops teach young students the basic principles of art and technology as they create their own rudimentary video games, animations, robotics, and more. Whether your child figures out every trick in a particular video game, expresses creativity through arts and crafts, or just wants to know how things work, these workshops are sure to inspire as well as excite!

Location

Young Explorer Workshops utilize classrooms across the street from DigiPen's main campus at Overlake Christian Church (9900 Willows Rd NE, Redmond, WA 98052).  

We lease rooms at OCC for these workshops because the space is better suited for young children- child-friendly classrooms, grass to run on- than the collegiate classrooms at DigiPen.
