DMA LOCATION SPOTLIGHT: Hot Tech at the Univ. of Houston

By Phill Powell

It’s the big, brassy buckle on the Sunbelt, and the fourth-largest city in America.

We’re talking about hustling, bustling Houston…a Texas oil town that became the epicenter of American space exploration, and is now a mecca for tech industries of all types.

Sunny, sprawling Houston will be home this summer to DMA’s tech camps at the University of Houston!

It’s also home to the University of Houston (UH), which is where tech’s ever-changing future gets researched and mapped out.

And this year, UH will play host to Digital Media Academy and our Univ of Houston tech camps.

ONE AMAZING MONTH

For four weeks this summer (from July 11th through August 5th), young people from all over the Houston area – including Pasadena, The Woodlands and Sugar Land (as well as Texas City, Conroe and Galveston) – will descend on the UH campus in southeast Houston and start discovering the always amazing world of tech.

We’re talking super-cool STEM subjects like robotics & electrical engineering, app development for iPhone and iPad and digital filmmaking.

Not tech enough? Okay, if you want to get even further out on tech’s cutting edge, DMA will be offering new courses at UH this summer:

Virtual Reality…VR brings games to eye-popping life. Learn to build levels in our VR tech camps.

3D Printing…Find out how easy it is to learn 3D printing – where you’re designer and manufacturer.

DOTA 2 Game Design…Why is it the world’s hottest game? Learn DOTA 2 game design and see.

PROGRAMS TO FIT EVERY FAMILY’S NEEDS

This may be DMA’s first season at UH, but we’re going all out…offering 35 different camp, course and academy options for students. There is a DMA learning experience to inspire every camp-age student and fit every family’s budget.

One of the great things about our program this summer at UH is the flexibility it offers. For example, we offer convenient a.m.- or p.m.-based schedules for certain half-day Adventures camps for kids.

The beauty of those day camp experiences (aside from their very reasonable cost) is the way they keep either your child’s morning or afternoon free for other summer-vacation fun with the family.

Whether your family lives in the Houston area or is just planning to be there during July, DMA’s tech camps at UH offer the learning adventure of a lifetime.

PREPARE FOR LAUNCH!

There’s a great summer to be enjoyed at DMA tech camps at the University of Houston, but you shouldn’t act too slowly. This is going to be a huge season for DMA. We’re already seeing two courses filling up rapidly. Our Java programming courses and our two week Java programming academies will soon be at capacity. So don’t miss out!

Texas is tech country. Stake your claim this summer with DMA.
