Life is Tech! Teaching Method


The camp offers a wide variety of courses that caters to everyone!

Whether you want to learn about cutting-edge ICT such as Game Design, or simply have a casual interest in programming, we have the right courses just for you!
For the camp, we have prepared a total of 6 courses. They are: iPhone Apps Programming, Android Apps Programming, 3D Game Programming, Web Design, Minecraft Programming and Video Editing.
The main objective of the camp is to allow campers to experience the process of “create something new”. The first thing that we hope students gain from the camp is not the programming skills but rather the joy of creating new things.
In addition, for the campers that want experience more challenging courses, we aim to teach them technologies that are used by real world industries and guide them in creating their own original product!

The mentoring ratio is 1:6!

For every 6 campers, there will be 1 dedicated university student mentor providing support!
In the midst of learning programming skills, there may be numerous occasions where you encounter errors and problems. It would be frustrating and confusing when you are trying to overcome these obstacles on your own without any guidance. However, in this camp, you can easily ask your student mentors for advice if you need assistance.
With the opportunity to openly discuss your programming ideas or problems with your mentor, you are able to continuously improve your skills.

This camp will be the one of best times of your life!

We hope that by the end of the camp, you will agree with us that you just had one of the most wonderful times of your life!
The camp will be an entertaining experience for you! Be assured that the programming learning journey will be enjoyable as you experience activities such as the camp games, interactions with the mentors, presentations and talks given by prominent figures invited to the camp.
By making the camp entertaining and the learning process of IT fun, we hope that you will be motivated to learn more about IT, and will join us again at Life is Tech!
