High school students will be hurling objects, making amplifiers for their iPod players, building earthquake-resistant towers and programming Lego Mindstorm Robots during Camosunâ€™s 4th annual technology summer camp, July 12-16.
DiscoverTech@Camosun will be a fun and action-packed week for 10 young people as they learn how math, physics, electronics and computer programming can lead to a wide choice of high-tech careers.
â€śThis year the Department of National Defence will provide a tour for our students, â€ś said April Atkins, Enrolment and Promotions Assistant for Camosunâ€™s School of Trades and Technology. â€śOur past two DiscoverTech programs have enjoyed this opportunity on a guided tour of the Fleet School and even have lunch on their ship.â€ť
To windup the week, students will gain a real-world career perspective by touring the Department of National Defence Friday morning, followed by afternoon competitions and showcasing their projects to friends and family.
The weekâ€™s activities cover four different technology fields
Civil Engineeringâ€”use a professional architectural kit to build a skyscraper from real blueprints
Electronics Engineeringâ€”assemble an amp to hook up to your IPod player, microphone, speakers and an electric guitar
Mechanical Engineeringâ€”design and build a spring action catapult to see who can hurl objects the farthest
Computer Systemsâ€”work with Leo Mindstorm Robotics to program and design your own lego robot
