KidsCamp – Preparing Kids To Be Digital Innovators Thru STEAM

KidsCamp – Preparing Kids To Be Digital Innovators
Thru STEAM
by William Jackson

KidsCamp at WordCamp 2018

This years’ KidsCamp in Orlando has embraced STEAM
and a theme of “SPACE,” its mysteries as the “Final Frontier.”
Lead Organizer William Jackson (My Quest To Teach) and
Co-Organizer Aida Correa (LoveBuiltLife), educators and
business owners have activities in place that will be fun,
challenging, engaging and creative.
Like space agencies working hard to place spaceships,
satellites and people in space to explore distance planets
and galaxies, William and Aida are serving as the
“Commanders” and preparing the youth that serve as
“Captains” and their parents which will be their “Number
Ones” or “First Officers.”
As seen on programs like Star Trek, Deep Space Nine,
and Enterprise.
WordCamp conferences are being held across the nation and
even on an international level. Providing opportunities for
business owners, entrepreneurs, Artists, Bloggers, Micro-Bloggers,
Podcasters, educators and digital innovators to attend.
Hearing dynamic speakers sharing their experiences and
providing resources.
WordCamp conference are part of the broader WordPress
family of “open source” web development that encourages
the sharing of  ideas, skills, knowledge and collaboration.
Serving as advocate, volunteer, speaker and organizer,
I have stated, “it is many times better to collaborate than to
compete.
Web businesses offer careers to youth, teens and young
adults that are fascinated with technology and the web.”
We have spoken at 14 conferences with 2 being international
conferences and participating in EdCamp educational
conferences.
Advocating the involvement of children of color and culture
to be involved in careers of STEM/STEAM and Web Development.
Youth and teens must learn the Internet offers much more than
entertainment, music and movies there are opportunities for youth,
teens and young adults to have businesses like Lemonade Code Girl
Twitter @lemonadecode and Miles Lifton, Twitter @KidCoderDev.
Tomorrows business owners will be digital innovators using the web
for Ecommerce, Branding and Marketing. All tech is scalable and
adaptable to multiple platforms.
WordCamp and KidsCamp are providing mentors, resources and
services to start youth, teens and young adults on their path to
increased digital citizenship and business ownership.
