Any current elementary school student is invited to apply to attend any camp session.  Students who apply must be in grades 3, 4, or 5 this current school year.  Up to twenty-four (24) students will be accepted in each session.

The Summer Technology Camp is an opportunity for students to expand their technology skills by applying them to real life applications. Students attending the camp will:
· Use LEGO components to build machines to perform specific tasks and use computers to control the machines they build.
· Explore math, science and technology related concepts using the machines they build.
· Develop a portfolio of their projects completed in the technology camp showing pictures and videos of their machines in action.

This will be a great experience for students with beginning to advanced technology skills.  We provide advanced activities for students who have previously attended Tech Camp.
