We were so proud of kids work and enthusiasm in participating in fun challenges. Again, thank you so much to all parents for taking the time out on Friday and celebrating kids success with us. We loved working with our kids in summer and looking forward to seeing all of them again in June.
So, what do we have for 2016 Summer Tech Camp at VisionTech!
Tech camps are becoming the ultimate place where kids & teen can explore learning new technology skills. From girls learning to code to the “Maker” and “Tinkering” phenomenon encouraging kids to design and print 3D objects. All camps are designed to be project-driven, hands-on programs that give campers a fun learning experience. Over the summer kids choose to participate in multiple different camp courses to create a unique blend of learning experience tinkering with Arduino to making mods for their favorite Minecraft game.
