About BlueStamp

We are a hands on technology program for high school students. We don’t do lectures, tests, or homework. We just build cool stuff from scratch.

Why am I learning this?


At BlueStamp we understand the reason for lectures, exams, and tests. However, while we recognize that students must be evaluated in this manner, it is not always as enjoyable and does not always answer the question of “Why am I learning this”? The personal motivation in creating BlueStamp was to offer a real world experience in technology. Throughout our careers, we have found that customers want something very simple: high value products that work. BlueStamp replicates this aspect of the global marketplace to give students the most relevant and useful education possible. The BlueStamp team looks forward to working with students every summer as they develop passions in a challenging and exciting atmosphere!
