Millersville Technology Camp

From Millerville’s website: Technology Camp

General Information

Throughout the summer months, the Department of Industry & Technology at Millersville University of Pennsylvania offers a variety of technology camps for children and teens from grades 3-12. The camps offer participants the opportunity to receive exciting hands-on experience with fascinating technology, while stimulating creative minds-on learning.

Technology Camps are normally half-day, 15 hour per week sessions. At this time, no overnight accommodations are possible on the campus of Millersville University. However, Lancaster County can be a great place for the family to vacation at while their children attend our camps.

Parents can register their child for morning or afternoon camps depending on their families summer schedule. Every camp is packed chock-full with learning, interaction, and hands-on activities. Activities can range from making model planes to flying real ones; making model bridges to building life size bridges. Every summer new and exciting camps are being added to our schedule.

Hockey Sticks

Discover students in the Problem Solving classes have been working for several cycles to develop alternative uses for broken hockey sticks.  All groups have completed the brain storming and several are now into the construction phase.  I am in awe of the fantastic ideas the kids presented.  Great thinking!  I cannot wait to show off the new products through their ads.

Congratulations to our TSA Club!
