Summer Camp: Motivating Students for Advanced Personalized Learning
In the winter of 2010, I created my own company in Nicaragua. I encouraged one of my cousins, then a first-year at Stanford, to join me as co-founder. With mutual interests in education, engineering, crafts, sports, science and sustainability and with a timeline that included only one summer, we decided to start a summer camp for middle schoolers. We decided that the theme of our summer camp would be sustainability, because it could be linked to our main interests and would encourage an environmentally conscious mindset for our campers, who we hope one day will turn out to be leaders in Nicaragua.
