Approximately 40 area high school students from northwest Ohio and southeast Michigan will immerse themselves in the vast possibilities of modern technology during the camp. Participating students will have the chance to create their own apps, learn about modern business applications of technology, and actually build a computer.

The camp will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Savage & Associates Business Complex on UT’s Main Campus.

The 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,” said Darlene Stevens, enrollment management specialist in the College of Business and Innovation. “Students will 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 at UT.”

Corporate sponsors for the 2015 camp are Asus and Eaton Corp.
