Approximately 40 area high school students will immerse themselves in the possibilities of modern technology at the third annual Technology Camp to be presented by The University of Toledo College of Business and Innovation Tuesday through Thursday, July 9-11.

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

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

The 2013 camp is being enhanced with the help of major partners, including ASUS, Intel, Corsair, Verizon Wireless and Eaton Corp., giving attendees the chance to win a new ASUS Vivobook laptop with Windows 8, a Blackberry Z10 from Verizon Wireless and other prizes.

“The College of Business and Innovation 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 undergraduate programs and administration in the college. “Coupled with The University of Toledo’s gorgeous campus and positive learning atmosphere, our Technology Camp invites curious students into the world of technology where they will be able to 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, “The Savage & Associates Complex is the perfect location for the 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.”

The College of Business and Innovation provides the camp experience free of charge for the registered participants.
