If I could go back to school and take only one class it would definitely be tech related. If only I knew how to really code (not the copy and paste stuff)…but like really dig in the backend of my website (without the help of my gracious web designer, hosting team, etc.), I can’t imagine how amazing that would be. Who knows, maybe I’ll take a few classes in the future, but luckily there’s hope for our kids. I was thrilled when iD Tech Camps reached out to me to offer you more information on what they do and how priceless the opportunity can be for the next generation.
iD Tech Camps are the #1 summer tech camp for ages 7–18 at Stanford and 150 top campuses. Kids can learn how to become a coder, game developer, engineer, or designer. And the best part – there’s 6 camp locations this summer in the Pacific Northwest!
To make it easy – here’s the program breakdown, provided by iD Tech…
