Frequently Asked Questions
All Full Sail Labs facilitators receive background checks with Level 2 FBI clearance, are CPR certified, and receive 100 hours of education before they fully step into their roles. They are trained quarterly on the tools and technology, best teaching methods and how to work with different learner behaviors. We also require all full-time facilitators to become certified Apple Teachers.
There is a 1:10 instructor to student ratio and our labs hold a maximum of 24 students for optimal learning. Since groups will be from 10 to 20, there will always be at least two instructors to teach and assist in project development for all students in the lab.
Absolutely! We have a great lounge environment designed for you to relax and watch the Lab. Relax and wait, mingle with other parents, or get some work done with our lightning fast WiFi all while observing your child learn and engage in the classroom. Due to legal reasons, parents and guardians are not permitted to enter the classroom Lab space during a session.
For School Year and Homeschool Programs, a 30-min leeway is given for early drop-off and pick up. One hour leeway for early drop-off and late pickup is only available for our Summer Camp campus programs. We will, of course, remain with a child if they are left past the end of class time, but please be advised there is a late pickup fee of $1 per minute. Otherwise, we offer Open Lab time from Monday-Friday from 4:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m during the academic year.
Full Sail Labs operates on the campus of Full Sail University, utilizing the same security protocol, including an on-site campus security team doing rounds of the property, and 24-hour security surveillance. Entry into our secure facility requires an ID badge or a facilitator escort.
Clothing: Sleeved shirts with pants, jeans, capris, shorts, skorts, or skirts and dresses of an appropriate length.
Shoes: Sport, casual shoes or sandals are recommended.
Our programs are for Kids (ages 7-12) and Teens (ages 13-17).
We recommend that our students arrive on time so that they have enough time to complete their projects. We understand sometimes 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.
Families that want their children to be in the same session can coordinate with each other to sign up for the same Homeschool, School Year Program, or Summer Camp. Before enrolling, we recommend contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 407-673-6249 to verify there are enough spaces available to accommodate your child and their friend(s). Please note, we cannot give out any private and privileged information about other students. Because the registration process is online, spots fill up quickly and we cannot guarantee friends will be in the same session.
For campus programs, all technology and equipment are provided for students in the Lab. Student enrolled in Online Courses will need to provide their own technology and gear; those specifications are listed in each course page.
The only thing they need to bring is their creative juices, and enthusiasm! Our lab environments are equipped with everything students need to develop their creative projects.
Summer Camps run in weekly intervals from the beginning of June through mid-August.
Nowadays, Kids and Teens have access to a wide variety of technology and are well versed in using it. At Full Sail Labs, they will engage, think, and create with the guidance of knowledgeable facilitators. Full Sail Labs works to foster the imaginations of learners and provide an outlet where they transform from being passive content consumers into engaged content creators.
The goal of Full Sail Labs is to transform Kids and Teens from content consumers into content creators. Students 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. Our curriculum teaches using a hands-on and project-based learning approach. While each program is different, every student will walk away having developed a new skill and created something of their own whether it be a playable game, a fully produced song, or a short film. Students will learn to create content and become storytellers.
You can easily register for our campus programs through our website’s registration process. If you need assistance or encounter any issues while registering, please contact our enrollment coordinators at 407-673-6249.
