Houston Tech Camps

Digital Media Academy has recently come to Rice University but it has quickly become one of our favorite camps in Texas. Our staff make each student’s time at camp an amazing and unique learning experience. Our students love the campus and break time is just as enjoyable as their time in the classroom.

The small campus is located in the museum district of Houston and students may find themselves exploring the campus while working on projects or getting a taste of college life in the residence and dining halls. Rice is an excellent place to explore your interests and make new friends.

Since 1912, Rice has dedicated itself to its students and its number 1 ranks in materials science research, global university business, and number 2 ranking in student life is a result of its dedication. The campus is beautiful and is known for its abundance of trees on its heavily-wooded 300 acre land.The 6,500 students also benefit from the legacy of its alumni, as 3 Nobel laureates, 2 Pulitzer Prize winners, 6 Fullbright Scholars, and 14 Nasa astronauts all call Rice home. The academics are outstanding at Rice and all follow the Rice Honor Code. Almost all exams are unproctored and students are given times, closed-book exams for students to take home and complete. Rice has been a staple in American history as well, as it served as the site for Superbowl VIII and a speech given by John F. Kennedy where he challenged America to send a man to the moon by the end of the 1960s. Rice lives up to its legacy and is a perfect place to start one’s own journey of innovation and personal development.
