2019 Techie Camp: Georgia
With support from the Nordson Corporation, TECH CORPS will implement its signature Techie Camp® program with 106 middle school students across DeKkalb County.
Techie Camp is a full-day, week-long summer experience designed specifically for elementary and middle school students. The goal of Techie Camp is to engage students in activities that can stimulate a deeper interest in technology as well as provide opportunities for them to express their imaginations. Students can take a "deep dive" into Programming, Robotics, App Development or Web Development.
Each camp is comprised of 20 students and led by two TECH CORPS Instructors. Families will be responsible for transportation and lunch/two snacks/beverages. Camps will be held at six DeKalb County Public Library branches.
The dates and topics for the Techie Camps are as follows:
- June 3-7, 2019: App Development at Stonecrest Library
