About Kids Digital U's Summer Programs

Kids Digital U (aka Newton Animations) offers weekly, bi-weekly, 4 and 8 week summer programs for kids aged 10 to 18 in 3D design & animation, 3D modeling & printing and virtual/mixed/augmented reality. Our flagship 3D Summer Tech Camp, specifically ranked as the #1 co-ed 3D program in the state, is designed for beginner to intermediate students going into grades 5 through 11. Our 3D Summer Tech Camp provides an introduction to all facets of 3D including 3D design, 3D animation, 3D printing & virtual/mixed/augmented reality. We also provide summer programs in specific disciplines like 3D character design & animation, 3D modeling for 3D printing and 3D for virtual/mixed/augmented reality. What makes our summer programs unique are our custom curriculums and the use of cutting-edge interactive and three dimensional technologies (i.e. hardware like hologram and motion/facial capture systems), unavailable at any like program for kids in the country, to supplement the traditional learning experience. No program in the country has invested in advanced interactive, three dimensional and digital technologies for kids to our scale. Kids love it and thrive in our programs. As the only accredited Cinema 4D program for kids in New England, students receive an 18 month (non-commercial) license to Cinema 4D R19 and hundreds of professional 3D design & animation projects for their personal use. No like program in New England offers the same. Teenagers travel from as far away as New York City to attend our summer programs. The data points below compare the considerations of our 3D Summer Tech Camp versus the nearest like Boston area programs. Take the time to verify these data points for yourself. You will find we offer an overwhelming value proposition for kids aged 10 to 18 genuinely interested in learning 3D. Of course students in our 3D Summer Tech Camp have a little fun while here as well. We maintain the largest 3D printing, virtual & augmented reality labs for kids in the state. Students also get to use all of our digital entertainment systems we normally provide for events (corporate holiday parties, weddings and bar/bat mitzvahs). They are a blast and great tools to complement our learning systems. We run our summer program out of our state of the art animation studios filled with advanced technologies allowing digital imagination and creativity to soar. Other 3D programs take place in a lecture hall or classroom. Take a few minutes to read the tables below that provide an overview of the considerations of our 3D Summer Tech Camp & other summer programs versus the #2 & #3 ranked summer 3D programs (and we sincerely encourage you to research and verify these data points for yourself).

We always deliver more than promised (read this fact for yourself from other parents/guardians on our Facebook page).

 

** Based on our peers 2017 summer profile. Simply put we provide our summer students the use of state of the art 3D technologies, unavailable at any like program in the country, much more personal attention and at a much lower cost than our peers. The #2 ranked 3D summer tech program charged tuition of $1,195/week last summer. Please verify these data points for yourself. We are overwhelmingly, by any standard, the best summer 3D tech program for your children in the Greater Boston area.

 

Why Kids Digital U summer programs?

We encourage you to review these points with any like 3D summer program you are considering for your children.

7. Most advanced technologies. There is no program in the country that has invested in advanced interactive, three dimensional, virtual, augmented and digital technologies for kids to our scale. There is no program that has incorporated these systems into their curriculum either. We've invested over $200,000 in our systems to date. No where but in our programs will your kids have access to such cutting-edge technologies.

 

8. Largest 3D printing lab (for kids) in the state. We love our MakerBot 3D printing lab. Your child/children will share one 3D printer with at most one other student. We can do this because we can rent out our machines during the traditional school year.

 

9. Cinema 4D student licenses. All students receive an 18 month student license to Cinema 4D, generally considered the best 3D software in the world. We are the only accredited Cinema 4D program (for kids) in all of New England.

 

10. Breadth of technologies & disciplines. We offer much broader opportunity than any like camp. Some students come here to experience & learn virtual reality but then learn they prefer motion capture. Kids can do as little or as much as they please and change their minds daily. We love it.

 

11. Computer processing power. We maintain one of the largest private render farms with hundreds of processing cores to produce animation in minutes that would take days via a typical personal computer at home.

 

12. Our history of delivering more than promised. Every year we surprise our students with a large, unannounced investment in a new technology at the start of every summer. This summer of 2018 was no different. We rolled out our recent investment in light painting technology and the kids love it!!!

 

 

 

 

1. Commitment to our program. We're here all year while other area 3D tech camps, headquartered out of state, rent space for the summer and hire local public school teachers to run their summer programs. While we think the world of public school teachers we are personally & professionally committed to our success. They are not. Simply put we are certain we have more at stake than our peers.

 

2. Quality of our curriculum. We are full time developers and digital artists. We've invested enormous resources developing our programs over the years. Our staff has experience developing 3D, gaming & virtual content for major US corporations including Disney, EA Sports and medical device manufacturers. We come from the real world. This is why we were ranked the #1 3D program for kids in the state.

 

3. Lowest teacher to staff ratio (by far). We've never been more than 1 teacher for every 4 campers (we're usually 1 for every 3). One like program actually boasts about their 1 teacher for every 8 students as their competitive advantage. Ask around. We provide plenty of personal attention to every student.

 

4. Lowest tuitions (by far). One program we know of charges $2,300 for two weeks tuition (versus ours at $1,490). This program hires staff from the same pool of candidates we sometimes employ and does not nearly offer the advanced systems we do nor provide nearly the personal attention as Kids Digital U (read #3 as well).

 

5. Professional digital media/3D projects. Kids receive non-commercial licenses to literally hundreds of professional 3D design & animation projects for their personal use. There is no summer program in New England such an extensive library of digital content.

 

6. We love teaching kids. Newton Animations/Kids Digital U was founded almost by accident. Our founder was looking for a way to invest productive time with his pre-teen and teenage daughters. It was so personal and successful others kids asked if they could learn using our exact syllabus.

We offer weekly, bi-weekly, 4 & 8 week summer programs for students grades 5 & up and grades 8 & up all summer long. A student in grade 4 may enroll in any summer program open to students in grade 5 & up all summer long as long as he/she has an older sibling attending the same program the same week. Our summer programs start at 9:00 AM and end at 5:00 PM every day but Friday. On Fridays our program ends at about 3:30 PM but students may stay until 5:00 PM. We do go outside daily after lunch for 30 to 45 minutes to a nearby park to horse around, play tag, throw a frisbee and play other games. Students bring their own lunches, drinks and snacks. We maintain plenty of water and simple foods like goldfish & pretzels in a small kitchen area with plenty of refrigerator space. Students have a morning snack at about 10:30 AM, lunch at noon and an afternoon snack at about 2:45 PM. Of course your kids can grab a bowl of goldfish and/or pretzels whenever they might be hungry. We rotate daily activities every 60 to 90 minutes depending on the subject matter at hand. Students are never seated in our computer lab for more than an hour.

 

Please note we have students with severe food allergies. We maintain a nut & shellfish (of any kind), sesame, kiwi (yes kiwi) and guacamole free studio.

 

We do offer an early drop off program where students may be dropped off at 7:30 AM and a late pick up option where students may stay to 6:30 PM. Please let us know as soon as possible if you need an early drop off and/or late pick up so we can staff accordingly (our staff generally arrives at 8:30 AM and leaves at 5:15 PM for the day).

 

Students in all of our summer programs, no matter the subject matter, receive an 18 month student license to Cinema 4D R19 and literally hundreds of professional 3D design & animation projects for their personal use. There is no other program in New England that offers the same. Please call us at 781-708-1255 if you have any questions.
