iD Tech in action

Howdy iDer's - It is (the other) Pete, AKA Activity Pete or iDPeteV (on Twitter).

My job is to try to make camp fun while the Campers are not on the computers, and to do this, I really have to think up cool games and activities that are truly unique and interesting. Sometimes, though, I rely on the incredible iD staff to come up with creative solutions to some of the challenges I put forth - I call these challenges "Nachos."

The staff at Internal Drive Tech Camps comes from around the world and are amazingly talented. Beyond teaching Digital Video, Digital Photography, Video Game Creation, Role Playing Game Design and so forth, these (mostly young) adults have secret lives as artists, teachers, designers, programmers, soldiers, leaders and more. I realized very quickly that simply telling them what to do neglected to acknowledge the skills that they already had - instead, we (Bryan and I) developed Nachos to give them an incentive to share their talents.

One of the Nachos was called the Lunch Lady, which required staff to make a non-ice-cream dessert for or with their Campers. We had some fantastic submissions, one of which I'm sharing, but first there is a HUGE DISCLAIMER:

(pause for dramatic effect)

The Lunch Lady Nacho was only one of *many* Nachos and it happened to request an event that included eating food that can be considered junk (although there are alternative recipes that are healthier). iD Tech Camps *always* encourages Campers and staff to eat and live healthy. In fact, SEVERAL of the Nachos were all about eating well and exercising every day. So remember, this recipe is a special treat that I believe is more fun to make than eat, but that's my opinion!

I believe Chris from the Arizona State University computer camp (forgive me if I'm wrong) submitted this awesome project, along with some of his pics. A pictorial recipe for 6 different variations is found after the break.
