WAYNESBURG – Young mathematicians, scientists, engineers and technology specialists will travel to Waynesburg University Aug. 5-9 for CAMP Tech.
The camp will offer a week of fun, hands-on learning, with morning and afternoon programs for students entering grades 3-8 in the fall. Sessions will take place on the third floor of Waynesburg University’s Miller Hall.
Campers will have the opportunity to work with new technology while gaining 21st-century skills such as problem solving, creativity, collaboration and digital media literacy.
The university is partnering with the Intermediate Unit 1 Center for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics Education to host the camp.
Organizers say the program offers experiences that aren’t typically provided in public schools.
CAMP Tech is funded by IU 1’s Center for STEM Education and camp registration fees.
Morning sessions will take place from 8:30 a.m. to noon and afternoon sessions will take place from 12:30 to 4 p.m. Each session costs $60; however, students may attend the whole day for a discounted rate of $100, space permitting. Those interested in CAMP Tech are encouraged to register early. Space is limited to 16 campers in each session, and registration is on a first-come, first-serve basis.
