YORK TECH OFFERS WEEK LONG STEAM SUMMER CAMPS FOR RISING 5th - 12th GRADE STUDENTS

York Technical College will once again host Camp Tech, week-long summer camps focused on science, technology, engineering, art and math. These STEAM camps will begin June 12 and will run through July 28, and are offered at the College’s main campus as well as the off-campus centers in Chester and Indian Land.

Each camp is $155 each and includes a Camp Tech t-shirt and a daily snack for participants.  Some camps have a supply fee in addition to the base registration fee.CampTech

“We are pleased to have the opportunity to get students interested in the STEAM fields from an early age by offering exciting and hands-on summer camps for them to participate in” expressed Dexter Harlee, an instructor for Information Technology at York Tech. This is the third year York Tech has offered these enriching summer camps to the community.

New this year, the Shakespeare and Software camp, combines classic English literature and high-tech software. During this camp, students will study a Shakespearean play and create their own interpretations of it using facial animation, 3D animation, and cartoons. Students will interpret Shakespearean language and themes to create and design their own versions of the play using Crazy Talk and Storytelling Alice.

A returning favorite, the Kodu Game Programming camp, allows students to build several games from simple to more complex, as the week progresses. Students will learn to plan roles of objects in an object-oriented game, path generation and motions as well as programming actions.
