Testimonials from Princeton University

  • "My son was deeply engaged in the course, which was great to hear. He felt that he learned a lot for an introductory course."
    - Lawrence C., Parent, Princeton University iD Programming Academy
  • "Not only did he learn tons about object-oriented programming, he also exploded with individuality, imagination and independence. My son enjoyed extraordinary opportunities to collaborate with others, and to renew his passion for programming by assisting his fellow students. We couldn't be more delighted with his time at iD Tech."
    - Janet R., Parent, Princeton University iD Programming Academy
  • "The program was an excellent opportunity to get exposure to introductory programming. Course work was exactly what we were looking for. I am impressed with how much progress everyone made in 2 weeks."
    - Russell C., Parent, Princeton University iD Programming Academy
  • "This is my son's first programming camp. I believe he has learned a lot and wish we had started earlier. Thank you very much."
    - Agnes F., Parent, Princeton University iD Programming Academy
  • "One of the best-run camps any of my children have attended (and they have attended many). Everyone was professional, friendly, and made my child feel comfortable even though he had no prior programming experience. A great success! Thank you all."
    - Sandra F., Parent, Princeton University iD Programming Academy
  • "The challenge of making a robot and programming it was very challenging when the closest thing I have ever done is make basic lego constructions. The instructors here made it fun and more then just doable. I was able to use my imagination to create and program my robot to do anything that I could want it to do."
    - Zac C., Student, Princeton University iD Programming Academy
  • "I think this camp is a great place to not only gain coding experience, but also a great place to meet friends."
    - Viktor D., Student, Princeton University iD Programming Academy
  • "I had so much fun at this camp learning about programming in a fun manner and meeting new people. I will definitely consider coming back next year!"
    - Mel M., Student, Princeton University iD Programming Academy
  • "The Academy is one of the only places where such courses are offered with high quality instruction."
    - Vinayak K., Student, Princeton University iD Programming Academy
  • "Apollo shared his knowledge and experience with my parents about the possibility that my high school can adjust my schedule for me to take a college course as a junior. My time here was well spent, and filled with many experiences that I know will assist me in the near future. I've made connections and branched out with fellow computer programmers that I wouldn't have even known otherwise. Thanks iD Programming Academy for the awesome head start on my journey towards a career in computer programming!"
