Courses at Digital Media Academy focus on helping students apply broad skills such as creativity, collaboration, and communication to overcome challenges. During a school camp, students are encouraged to work with their peers while exploring different approaches to problem-solving. We believe a crucial point of difference between Digital Media Academy and other courses on offer is the calibre of instructors employed. Digital Media Academy instructors are all highly respected tech educators, accomplished artists, and industry professionals who are passionate about working with children and sharing their knowledge. Each workshop is supported by teaching assistants to ensure student-to-staff ratios stay low and that learning is a personalised experience.
Digital Media Academy offers world class STEM camps that are held on the Stanford University Campus. With subjects like coding, robotics, and film production, students will delve into specialist subjects, exploring different problem-solving approaches and advancing their learning. Using project-based learning, students programme their robots to do laps around the campus or develop films and creative images of their surroundings. Students are encouraged to showcase their final projects at the end of camp.
Founded in 1885, Stanford University is a famous institution for learning and research and has lead numerous advancements in technology and science. Stanford's cutting-edge legacy continues on today with students and staff of this prominent university going on to create companies such as Netlifx, Google and more! The teachers and leaders of this institution aspire to develop more of the world's leaders in science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics.
