   BYOC Testimonials

 

In shouting our good news about my grandson choosing to major in computer science, I neglected to give props to Robin Walker, whose summer program, Camp BYOC (BUILD YOUR OWN COMPUTER) was the wind beneath my grandson’s wings. Robin’s summer program was intense but created for youth. In this program, Adam found his future by learning the intricacies of computer science, and yes, he did build his own computer through this program.

Thank you Robin Walker, because of your dedication and your vision, my grandson’s path and future have been laid before him.

Camp BYOC has been phenomenal for my daughter. She is really strongly considering a career in technology and enjoys the time she gets to spend learning this new language.

"The trip to California (2015) was a tremendous  experience! Being able to visit five different major companies  had one common effect on me and that is dreams really come true! This great opportunity put me on a different road to greatness, to make a difference in the world. I'm now a dream maker and catcher, this trip will always live with me!"   

--Kayln Lee, Cincinnati

 

"I got to get on a plane and go to California! We went to Silicon Valley and had an exciting, almost once in a lifetime experience. We went to big companies like SAAMA, HP, FACEBOOK, INTEL, and CISCO. These companies change technology, making it easier and easier to work on and use computers. Thank you very much for helping us have this experience."
