Alexa Cafe 2015 – Palo Alto, California


On Wednesday July 15, I had the pleasure of visiting the 2015 iD Tech Camp for girls called Alexa Cafe at Palo Alto High School in California.


Alexa Cafe is a summer camp for girls aged 10 to 15 with a focus on coding, web design, visual design and video production. I spent some time doing video interviews with instructors and students in three of the camps. One was based on video production with Adobe Premier Pro and the other two were focused on web design and image manipulation with Adobe Muse, Lightroom and Photoshop.

With an emphasises on entrepreneurship, leadership, brand identity, and philanthropy, each Alexa Cafe project is based on a social movement. The videos were focused on bullying and the website projects were telling a range of important stories on a variety of issues that were important to the girls.

Stay tuned for a video about this year’s visit. Here is the one I did with Mick McHugh at last year’s camp as seen on Adobe CreateEdu TV
