Approximately 40 area high school students will immerse themselves into the vast possibilities of modern technology at the fourth annual Technology Camp presented by The University of Toledo College of Business and Innovation Wednesday through Friday, July 23-25. It will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Savage & Associates Business Complex on the UT main campus.
Students are coming from 25 northwest Ohio and southeast Michigan high schools. Participating students will have the chance to create their own apps, learn about modern business applications of technology, and actually build a computer.
“The Technology Camp changes and expands every year to offer new activities for past and future campers.” said Dr. Terribeth Gordon-Moore, senior associate dean for the College of Business and Innovation. “Our Technology Camp invites curious students into the world of technology where they will explore business technology and how it applies to their daily lives. They will also be able to explore 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.”
Gordon-Moore added, “Furthermore, the Savage & Associates Business 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, certified energy-efficient environment.”
The UT College of Business and Innovation provides the entire camp experience free of charge for the participants.
“Computer technology is becoming an essential life skill for young people, and this camp is an outstanding opportunity for them to immerse themselves in a technology learning experience at literally no cost to them,” she said.
Corporate sponsors for the 2014 Camp are ASUS and Eaton Corp.
