I had everything planned
After my stepson’s amazing time at iD Tech last summer I was excited to introduce this fun camp to my middle son, Nicholas. Every day, Teddy came home excited to tell us about what he learned in his VR Design with Unity and Oculus Go camp. Not only did he learn how to code, but he was in an environment filled with fun, smart and witty students.
Similar to my stepson, Nicholas loves to play games. However, in a much different stance – he sees learning how to make games as his ticket to becoming a millionaire one day. As described in my blog, Raising Entrepreneurs, this kid has always dreamt of ways he can create money.
When I told him I needed to restructure our summer plans he asked me about iDTech.
Ever since the kids abruptly ended school nearly four weeks ago I found myself in a spontaneous summer situation again. I was trying to be a homeschooling mother who was only given a handful of tools on how to educate them (while working I must add!)
I was excited to find out that iDTech was offering online courses for learning and/or coding in Java, Minecraft, Roblox, AI, Unreal Engine, Adobe, 3D modeling, and more. Kids as young as 7 and as old as 19 can start learning how their favorite games work and create one themselves.
Since our CA governor closed down the rest of this academic year, my son chose to start taking the 5-day course at the end of April. He wanted something to look forward to as we journeyed through our second month at home. Each day will include 2 hours of live instruction + 2 hours of self-paced project development. There will be a small learning environment of just 5 students max per instructor, who will provide feedback via email to me so I can track Nicholas’ progress.
Since we enjoyed iDTech so much last year, I know that while this experience is a little different, it will still provide similar outcomes. Nicholas will make new friends, he will learn more about how Roblox works and he will use all this extra time a little more wisely. Most especially, he is investing towards his future goals. And me? Well, somebody else gets to be a teacher for a week – and for that, I am grateful!
