Technology

At TIC, every camper chooses ONE tech option per session. Campers concentrate on in-depth projects of their own design, along with a partner or a group, for two weeks. This enables campers to get more than just a superficial “taste” of different technologies. Campers may choose to do a different option in each TIC session they attend, or deepen their skills through repeating a tech option in another session. Since the instruction is individualized, there is never any repetition— they learn only what they want or need at any point.Rather than theory, we encourage and practice “hands on.”  Each TIC camper learns enough content to produce a project tailored to his or her own interests. Each group is taught by a highly qualified counselor whose enthusiasm for technology inspires campers to question, to experiment, and to create.  The curriculum is determined by what project campers want to write – with lots of models of what is possible for beginners, and no rigid lockstep learning.

With a 4:1 teaching ratio, every TIC camper gets the personal attention they deserve, and have the benefit of collaborating in pairs or small groups to solve problems together, learning intellectual teamwork and cooperation and creating exciting and original creations.
