KidsCamp, Building The Next Generation of Web Developers
Through STEAM Projects
by William Jackson, M.Ed.
KidsCamp Organizers for WordCamp Orlando and Jacksonville
Co-Organizer Aida Correa

The 2018 WordCamp Orlando conference has drawn hundreds
each year to learn about what is new in technology. Attendees
from across the country and even from foreign nations attend
to learn business tips, SEO – Search Engine Optimization
strategies, applying eCommerce tools, business law, web
development, new coding integration, Gutenburg and building
PLNs Professional Learning Networks.

The year’s #WCORL and #KidsCamp has seen presentations
by teens expressing their understanding of where the web is
going and suggestions on the direction the web should take.
Sharing their concerns, visions, innovative ideas for business
development, marketing, building Brands and creating Niches.

Youth, teens and young adults are building businesses and
willing to share their ideas about how the web can help
in Branding and Marketing. These are skills youth, teens
and young adults are learning.

KidsCamp Orlando 2018 theme “SPACE,” directed by
Organizer William Jackson and Co-Organizer Aida Correa
the youth attending from 7yrs old to 14 yrs old were involved in
STEAM related projects that prepared and created their first web
site on the WordPress.com platform. Using the free hosting service
option, the youth attending created a dynamic web presence that
will grow as they grow in their skills and abilities.

The focus on elements of STEAM – Science Technology Engineering
Arts Math/Music to engage youth in learning that is fun, creative and
begs for innovation. Project based learning is a powerful tool for youth
that are autistic and creative thinkers.

STEAM has helped hundreds of youth, teens and young adults see
the value and benefits of using tech to grow in business as an
entrepreneur, sole-preneur and in thought leadership.
KidsCamp are a growing part of every WordCamp conference
because youth, teens and young adults are demanding equal
access to knowledge and developing their skills just as adults are
in an nurturing and networking environment.

As youth grow so does the need for them to be taught how to be
producers of content not just consumers and to start new businesses
for the 21st and 22nd century. Parents can register for both and have
a wonderful experience building, designing, engaging and creating
great memories together while learning from STEAM and STEM
activities.
