Coach Nicolas Choux
Head of Computing
I am computer lover. My plan for the camp is to make our kids discover the many possibilities offered by a computer and how IT can be such a fun thing to do while being such an indispensable field. We will have many educational games and activities, most of them related to space, to teach the kids how to learn in a fun way and some non-educational games and activities to show them the potential of programming and to interest them in the field. Some of the activities includes, getting to know the power of Microsoft Word, Excel and Power Point, how to edit pictures and make a short movie, learn the basics of programming, and more activities to know about the Solar System and other places and objects "Outta Space".
Coach Matthew Campbell
I started coaching swimming with YMCA in 1984 and I have been with the EduTech team since inception in 1994. I enjoy teaching swimming and the challenge is with kids who are afraid of the water but the joy in the end is they become more comfortable in the water and they love it. One of my many achievements to aid in the coaching process of children is my certification in child psychology attained by the University of Technology.
