Virtual Camps During Spring Break
Grades 8-10. A faculty member at the UBC Computer Science department, Dr. Michael Gelbart, is organizing these camps (and teaching one of them).
Deconstructing TikTok (March 22-26) https://www.visst.ca/tiktok
Description: What data is collected when you use TikTok or other social media? Should you care? In this Spring Break camp, you’ll learn by turning the tables - unravel “the algorithm”, create your own targeted ads, look behind the scenes of data collection, and more.
My pandemic story (March 15-19) https://www.visst.ca/stories The Covid-19 pandemic has affected everyone, but how has it affected you? We’re partnering with a public health doctor to open a two-way dialogue about the lives of young people in a pandemic. You’ll learn how to tell stories and share experiences in new and powerful ways including your choice of writing, video, photo journals, drawings, or even memes.
