DMA Location Spotlight: McGill University

By Phill Powell

They call it “the Harvard of Canada,” and for good reason. Montreal’s McGill University is a place where science happens, sports begin and the future marches ever forward.

Family affair: This brother and sister duo was a hit at our McGill camps. Look at their concentration…

This year, kids (ages 6-12) and teens (12-17) came from all over Quebec and beyond to come to McGill and take advantage of great instruction in the most advanced tech topics going.

Here’s what July 2015 looked like around DMA’s tech camps at McGill:

A BIG HAND FROM MONTREAL

Waving bye-bye from DMA’s camps at McGill. We’ll see you back here next summer!

MARGE SIMPSON WAS RIGHT!

There’s lots more to the McGill story, like cool McGill trivia. Examples: What did cartoon icon Marge Simpson call McGill? What’s the school’s Star Trek connection? And why did nearly every big-time college sport get started there?

As always, the McGill story is full of surprises that make you come away even more impressed with this highly respected university.

We loved our summer at McGill University and thank our university hosts, as well as our great students and their parents.

This was DMA’s greatest summer yet and we encourage you to join us next summer at McGill or at any one of DMA’s nearby summer tech camp locations across Canada and the U.S.

Montreal is one of the world’s most happening places. Find out why next summer at DMA summer tech camps.
