Computers & Kids

Summer is not over yet and the kids, both young and old are still out to play. Our September 13th meeting will focus on the kids and our presenter will be Ted Jordan of Funutation Tekademy. There are numerous programs throughout the country where computer enthusiasts take their knowledge and share it with the youth of today. We observed that in the past with the computer team from Glenville High School last year. Funutation Tekademy teaches children (girls and boys) aged 8 to 15 the skills they need to compete in this ever changing computer-oriented society. They provide a stimulating environment that challenges their minds and foremost teach the concept of TEAMWORK. Funutation Tekademy is an outside resource that helps reinforce many of the concepts schools are currently teaching. They bring the laptops, software, and trained instructors – kids shows up to have fun and learn. The kids go home at the end of the course with their project and book.
The mission of Funutation Tekademy is that in the current social and educational climate, more and more young children are falling victim to apathy. There are many choices available for those who excel in athletics or the arts, but little for students who are interested in other paths. In Funutation Tekademy camps, students will learn skills that will put them on the forefront of technological development and will empower them to be prepared for the amazing world that awaits them.

About five years ago, IT consultant Ted Jordan was giving a presentation on home computer security when a parent approached him and asked him if he offered computer camps. From that conversation sprung Funutation Tech Camps, which not only offers summer computer camps on college campuses, but also hosts after-school and summer technology programs throughout the school year.
