My son just completed a week-long ID Tech camp at Rice University. I want to the Family Showcase today, and it was obvious that no instructor had even looked at his code. My son did not understand even the basics. He had enjoyed camp all week, unfortunately it is now clear that was because he was able to play (non-educational) video games pretty much all day long while he was there. Very, very disappointing.
Don't believe all the glowing testimonials, they are obviously from parents who don't know how to program. It took me all of 3 seconds to figure out my son had no clue and that no one had so much as glanced at his code to see if he was understanding anything. For nearly $1k I expected much, much more. Total waste of money.
