UT College of Business hosts fourth Technology Camp for high school students

Approximately 40 area high school students are immersing themselves into the vast possibilities of modern technology at the fourth annual Technology Camp presented by The University of Toledo College of Business and Innovation (COBI).

The camp began Wednesday and will continue through Friday with activities 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day in COBI’s Savage & Associates Business Complex on the UT Main Campus.

Students participating are from 25 Toledo, Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan high schools. They are creating their own apps, learning about modern business applications of technology, and actually building a computer. COBI provides the entire camp experience free of charge for the participants.

“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). We know that some of the students will become so enthralled by this experience that they will decide to study IT.”

“Furthermore, the Savage & Associates Business Complex is the perfect location for Technology Camp because it is brimming with high-technology classrooms, lecture capture capabilities and action learning labs, all housed in an amazing, certified energy-efficient environment,” Dr. Gordon-Moore added.

“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.”

Corporate sponsors for the 2014 Camp are ASUS and Eaton Corporation.
