iD Tech Camps: Cool Computer Camps

Creating websites, producing digital movies, programming iPhone and Facebook apps, designing 3-D animations and creating video games may sound intimidating. Not for twins Ross and Scott Padalino. At nine years old these twins learned and applied tech skills most adults find challenging. That’s what makes them a good example of the new generation of Digital Kids.


Digital Kids

You too can be a Digital Kid by signing up for a summer program called iD Tech Camps. Over 100,000 kids and teens have learned to create 2-D and 3-D video games, websites, digital movies, [kwlink23971]iPhone[/kwlink] and Facebook apps, robots, 3-D models and animations and more! If you’re between the ages of 7-17 you can attend this week-long, day and overnight summer program, located at 60 universities in Canada and 25 U.S. states!


Tech Twins

After taking a course in Game & Web Design, Ross and Scott decided to take their passion for technology further. They begged their parents to let them go back to iD Tech Camp in 2010 and take two more courses. But their mom told them they’d have to earn the money to pay for camp themselves. So they developed a website for a local company and were paid enough to cover their tuition next summer. And to top that off, they also got a contract to maintain the website!


Cool Computer Camps

iD Tech Camps has small class sizes of an average of six campers to staff. You’ll get to leave camp with a completed project, new tech skills and confidence going into the new school year. The instructors make learning fun and show how technology can impact the future. With so many opportunities for growth, the sky is the limit for these Digital Kids!

((Papyrus is so nervous, he can't decide, so he asks if PunMaster wants to choose.)) ​Wow, is Blueberry naïve? ​My friend's soul is purple, monster souls are white. "Yes, it does look odd, doesn't it?" As fast as I can, I button up my jacket. ​"Don't tell anyone. Especially not your brother. I fear he would not think well of me." ​Papyrus's assuming of anything would most likely not play out in my favour.

Blue stared at the glow, his blue eyes large. "Is that your soul?" He asked curiously. "It looks a bit odd..." He commented, his head tilting to the side like a dog's. Proof he spent a lot of time around the dogs, to be picking up on little actions like that. (PunMaster smiled, and sat down, gently helping Papyrus sit as well, and she let him choose the puzzle)

(("I-I... I guess so..." Papyrus, from lack of social interaction, stumbled over his words like a small child. But he was smiling. If you looked very close, you could see a tear in his eye.)) ​"I've honestly never had the time for them... But I'll give it a shot..." ​I really had plenty of free time, but I never cared about puzzles much. Unfortunately, during our romp around the Underground, my coat had come un-done. ​The reason I wear my coat is to hide the glow of my friend, but now she was pulsing with light. Too late to hide it from Blueberry's stare.
