Over the course of four weeks students gain knowledge of a technical concept, that ultimately allows them to apply those skills into a project the final week of camp. Additionally, our summer camp focuses on discovering, pursuing, and succeeding in technology through the exposure of technical concepts. Students do not need to have any prior technical experience, and all materials will be provided. We ask all students at least have a strong desire to learn more about tech.
