DMA Location Spotlight: Rice University

By Phill Powell

July can get mighty warm in Houston, but there was no cooler place to be this summer than DMA tech camps, held on the campus of prestigious Rice University.

Houston is a busy, thriving city but Rice’s secluded 295-acre campus has a traditional college look.

Kids (ages 8-12) and teens (12-17) came from all over Texas and beyond in order to take advantage of great instruction in the most cutting-edge tech topics going.

Take a look at the great time students had this summer in DMA tech camps at Rice University:
