Dell EMC’s Limerick campus is hosting an IT-focused summer camp for team members’ children this summer
Dell EMC Limerick have teamed up with WhizzKids for the second year in a row to host a tech summer camp for its team members’ children. As the course is designed specifically for children, the programme is both fun and educational.
Dell EMC Limerick is hosting two separate camps for teens and kids. Teens are set to learn all about app development, coding, 3D digital design, graphics and game development, while the younger kids will learn about scratch programming, web design, animation, game design and more.
WhizzKids adds a creative slant to its modules and updates workshops regularly to ensure that they are appealing to children and teens. The aim of this camp is to give young people a greater understanding of what goes on in the background when it comes to computers, how they can use technology to create their own content and, most importantly, to encourage their curiosity and exploration of technology.
Timmy O’Dwyer VP Global Service Parts Operations and Limerick Campus Leader, Dell EMC, said: “We are delighted to be teaming up with WhizzKids for the second summer in a row. These days kids and teenagers are so consumed by technology that it is really important that they learn what goes on in the background and more excitingly, how they can use technology effectively to bring any innovations they might have to life. I think a key message to get across is that technology is so much more than social media. We hope it’s interesting for the kids and teens to see where their parents go everyday and in some cases, get a flavour of what they do too.
“We are really looking forward to welcoming the kids and teens to the campus. They created a great atmosphere around here last year with their curiosity and eagerness to learn and no doubt this year will be the same.”
