GGC Tech Camp still has openings

Georgia Gwinnett College still is accepting applications from middle school girls for its fourth annual Tech Camp.

This summer enrichment program enables middle school students to explore computing careers, design their own games, and build robots during a hands-on, experience-based week of exposure to the computing future. Offered through the GGC School of Science and Technology, the program promotes creative thinking and problem-solving.

The college still has space available in the June 25-28 session for middle school girls.

“No experience is needed,” said Nannette Napier, assistant professor of information technology and a camp co-director. “Students are only limited by the boundaries of their imaginations.”

Middle school participants will use the popular LEGO Mindstorms to build their robots. They also will design games, music mash-ups and animations through hands-on experiences with personal technologies. They also will make new friends and get a glimpse of what college is like.

Students are supervised by and learn from Georgia Gwinnett faculty and staff, with additional assistance provided by GGC students. The teacher and assistant/student ratio is 1:6 during instructional sessions.

There is a $35 non-refundable application fee that is applied to the camp’s total tuition of $185. Students will be provided an afternoon snack but must pack their own lunches.

Register today at hercules.ggc.edu/ggctechcamp/. Space is limited.  For more information contact Nannette Napier or Kristine Nagel at 678.407.5458, or send an e-mail to TechCampAdmin@lists.ggc.edu.
