Summer Technology Camps for Students, Grades 1-6Posted June 9, 2014
Kent State University’s Research Center for Educational Technology is hosting a technology camp series for students in grades 1-6 in the center's AT&T Classroom, a high-tech classroom located in Moulton Hall. Campers may choose from a variety of topics including LEGO WeDo Robotics, Stop Motion Animation, Minecraft, game design, and computer coding and programming. Camp sessions run from June through July.
“Kids are very inquisitive about technology,” says Annette Kratcoski, Ph.D., director of Kent State’s Research Center for Educational Technology. “We design the camps to build on that curiosity by providing the participants with hands-on experiences with the latest technologies, as well as opportunities to use those tools to create projects that have personal meaning and significance. We focus on tools and apps that are free and accessible online so that after completing a camp, the child can use the skills they have learned in the camp and continue to create and design with those tools.”
Discounted registration rates are available for children of Kent State faculty and staff. Registration is open online at www.rcet.org.
