iD Tech Camps

Details

Day camps available from June 13 – July 15 at the University of Louisville

Description

Our summer computer camps for kids, pre-teens, and teens are segmented by course and age. Teens will study, socialize and eat with other teens, but may be in the vicinity of younger students during lab time. Yes, we’re a tech camp, but we do not sit in front of digital devices all day. We provide a well-balanced, fun summer camp experience that is age-appropriate for kids, pre-teens, and teens. Imagine a small group learning environment where the curriculum is tailored to you. A place where you build critical 21st century STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) skills in intimate clusters of just 8 students maximum per instructor, and collaborate with new friends.

You’ll gain confidence, explore a unique college campus, and get a taste of the collegiate experience. This isn’t just camp. It’s a portal to a fulfilling future, in college and beyond. Kids camps and teen camps encompass courses in programming with Java, C++, Python, Scratch, and more, app development with iPhone and Android, Minecraft, modding, FPS and RPG game design, robotics engineering with VEX and LEGO, 3D modeling and animation, filmmaking, photography, and web design. Course offerings vary by site. View courses at this location. Beginner or advanced, you’ll get inspired by energetic, tech-savvy instructors. Do something big this summer!

Camp

Camp Invention

Details

Multiple sessions during the summer at locations across Kentucky

Description

We’re building the future, one thinker at a time. Camp Invention runs for one action-packed week, typically Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Each day, campers work in teams as they rotate between four fun thematic modules. Each module brings new challenges to build upon what was learned the previous day. Just imagine what your child could experience:

  • Collaborate to build prototypes, following the example of National Inventors Hall of Fame inductees.
  • Upcycle and re-engineer with gears and gadgets, developing critical-thinking skills and creativity.
  • Explore STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) enrichment, motivating a group to develop solutions to real-world problems.

By the end of one inspiring week, your child has gained confidence, friendships and essential 21st Century skills that will last a lifetime.
