Campers Schooled in ‘Designing a Digital Future’

Thirty high school students took part in the first “‘Designing a Digital Future’ Career Camp,” presented by Pennsylvania College of Technology’s School of Business and Computer Technologies on June 19-20. Rotating between the school’s new labs for Financial Markets Investment and Web and Interactive Media, the students – all of them entering grades 10-12 – explored digital media-related professions ranging from computer game design and programming to simulation and software development. Using lessons gained from Penn College faculty during eight hands-on workshops in two days, the campers’ activities includes creation of a fully functional video game and design of Web pages and mobile applications. The students, who spent Tuesday night in campus housing, also held dodgeball and video-game tournaments.
