Let’s get real. Our kids have already been out of the classroom for over a month, and it seems like all they want to do is play online video games… like Roblox. Now, what if I told you there is a way to turn their passion for online gaming into an engaging educational experience? Interested? Then you totally need to check out iD Tech’s Virtual Tech Camps!
iD Tech is currently offering weeklong Virtual Tech Camps for kids ages 7-19 in a variety of topics ranging from Roblox and Minecraft game design to Python and 3D Modeling. There is something for everyone’s interests. Plus, each camp has no more than 5 students, so our kids get a lot of attention, opportunities to ask questions and assistance with their projects as they go.
My oldest Siobhan loves coding and playing Roblox so you can imagine how excited I was when I discovered iD Tech’s Roblox Game Design course. Sign me (really her) up! And it is one of the best decisions I have made during quarantine. Siobhan LOVED it! She anxiously awaited her daily two hour class, was engaged the entire time, made new friends that she now plays Roblox with and learned so many cool Roblox coding skills. She has been creating Obbys (basically in-game obstacle courses as I understand it) and publishing them to the game. Meaning, as soon as she was done with her daily courses and assignments, her and her friends would go play the Obbys she created. How cool is that?!
As a mom, I have been looking at her creations and am in awe of everything she learned how to do, especially at 7. At the end of camp, they had all of the parents join the class so we could see everything our kids had been working on (though full disclosure… I peeked at her work daily. Shhhh) and had the opportunity to ask the instructor questions if we wanted to.
I asked Siobhan to describe the class in one word. She chose “amazing.” The only downside according to her is the class is already over and she is going to miss it. That is a sign of a great camp in my book.

One thought on “A Perfect Virtual Tech Camp In A COVID-19 World”
I know so many parents and students who would love an opportunity to learn coding and a our online game creation. You are right as the weeks have moved along, children have become more restless . I think this opportunity would continue learning, while supporting their interests.
