Area high school students can immerse themselves in the possibilities of modern technology at the second annual Technology Camp presented by The University of Toledo College of Business and Innovation Wednesday through Friday, July 18-20.

“Social media is essential to teenagers today, but we also want to show local high school students the technology behind applications like Facebook, Twitter and smart phones,” said Dr. Seth Powless, associate lecturer in the UT Department of Information Operations and Technology Management. “The College of Business and Innovation’s Technology Camp is a wonderful opportunity for students to discover, in a very hands-on way, both the power and the fun of information technology. We know that some of the students will become so enthralled by this experience that they will decide to study IT.”

Tim Moore, who attended the first camp last summer, said, “The College of Business Tech Camp offered a very fun experience, connecting you with different types of hands-on technology.”

Participating students will have the chance to build their own web pages and create their own apps, learn about modern business applications of technology, meet teachers and students using technology and more.

Technology Camp will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Savage & Associates Complex for Business Learning and Engagement on UT’s Main Campus.

“The Savage & Associates Complex is the perfect location for Technology Camp because it is brimming with high-technology classrooms, lecture-capture capabilities and action learning labs, all housed in an amazing energy-efficient environment,” said Dr. Terribeth Gordon-Moore, senior associate dean for undergraduate programs and administration in the College of Business and Innovation.

Participants will receive breakfast and lunch and have the chance to win an iPad.

Registration, which costs $25, is required, and space is limited.
