With everything going on right now, my husband, I and the rest of parents around the world have become homeschool teachers over night, and let me tell you, I have an enlightened respect for those homeschool parents who existed pre-Covid19. Teaching is no joke, especially when it is thrust upon you. As of last week, classrooms have gone online, my children are getting accustomed to the school time schedule, so they can have the rest of the day free. I can’t begin to tell you the sense of relief when they finish their assignment each day, but then I am tasked withnot to filling the remainder of the day with just TV shows and online games.
There are plenty of resources out there for school curriculum options, but I’m a huge fan of enrichment opportunities too. That’s why I was so excited to discover iD Tech. With their variety of courses using both Virtual Tech Camps and Online Private Lessons, they make it easy for parents to give their kids the best possible experience in the realm of tech.
Tech camps are a great way to get kids excited about STEM. Since traditional camps are not an option right now, online tech camps have become an excellent resource to help get children excited about technology as well as a great addition to their homeschooling days. Siella was learning how to code in school, and really showed an interest in it this year, so what better time to continue her interest than now.
iD Tech is available to all skill levels and all kids ages 7-19. They offer structured, weeklong sessions lasting from Monday through Friday in multiple time zones so kids across the country can be a part of the action. The camps offer 2 hours of live instruction per day along with 2 hours of self-paced project development time per day so kids can hone their skills and work on projects.
In addition to their structured schedule, iD Tech’s curriculum covers Python, Java, Minecraft, Roblox, AI, Unreal Engine, Adobe, 3D modeling, and more. It’s a smorgasbord of tech everything, and with all the options available, it makes it easy for kids to find an avenue in tech that they’ll really love. Speaking of really loving them, I love that with online private lessons, they provide personalized instructor feedback to your email so you can track your child’s success.
And the kids will succeed because they’ll have some of the best instructors available at these online tech camps. iD Tech hires the best of the best educators, recruiting the same talent that big hitters like Google, EA, Tesla, and Disney target. Their staff features graduates from such universities as Stanford, Caltech, NYU, and other top-tier universities, and they are always adults. There are no high schoolers or CIT’s. The instructors are the cream of the crop. It’s an exclusive position that only a select few can have, which I love. I want my kids to learn from the best so they get the best possible education.
Another big bonus is that I can get more work done, as well. I want to give my kids the best education, but I also need to give myself time to get some work done. By enrolling them in the online tech camps offered by iD Tech and taking advantage of their online private lessons, I can ensure my kids are getting the best in education for their science enrichment, and I can get a little work done. It’s a win/win.
So far Siella is loving her online course with iD Tech, she’s learning to code and I cannot believe how much she has learned in such a short amount of time. I plan to sign up Ryder and Gemma next! Head over to the iD Tech webpage and learn more about their services. And my readers get $125 off any Virtual Tech Camp by using my code Manz125 As a bonus, when you sign up a child for Online Private Lessons, you can add a sibling or friend for free, a big value. Give them a look. It’s a great way to add an extra layer of educational goodness to their new homeschooling routine or extra enrichment for the summer.
