Apprentice and Engineering Camps

Take your learning experience of computer technology to a deeper level.  A series of sessions designed to take the student on a journey through the world of technology. The journey starts at the basics and progresses to more advanced technologies.  The student has the option to build a new computer that they keep.  Students learn to code and understand the history, current and future trends in technology. 

Associates and Seniors are returning students who go deeper into coding, robotics, and circuitry.  Students who take the Engineering sessions are also eligible to take the Explorer sessions.

Below are the dates and times of all the sessions.  You can register using the Sign Up link here or from the Register menu item.  Registration ends May 27, 2022.

 

Summer

Parent and Student Orientation Options - April 1 (6pm) or May 2 (6pm)
