For the fourth year in a row, curious students from across the region have descended upon the University of Toledo to immerse themselves in modern technology.
This year's Technology Camp, presented by UT's College of Business and Innovation (COBI), brought in students from 25 Toledo-area high schools.
Held in the college's Savage & Associates Business Complex, the free camp offered hands-on learning about modern business applications of technology, building a computer, and even creating apps.
"The COBI Technology camp changes and expands every year to offer new activities for past and future campers." said Terribeth Gordon-Moore, Senior Associate Dean for the College of Business and Innovation. "Our Technology Camp invites curious students into the world of technology where they will explore business technology and how it applies to their daily lives. They will also be able to explore both the power and the fun of information technology (IT).
This year's camp offered students the opportunity to pilot test a newly-created video game. Students also experienced the energy-efficient building's high-tech classrooms and action-learning labs.
"Computer technology is becoming an essential life skill for young people, and this Camp is an outstanding opportunity for them to immerse themselves in a technology learning experience at literally no cost to them," said Gordon-Moore.
ASUS and Eaton Corporation served as corporate sponsors for the three-day camp.
