Penn College’s third annual “Designing a Digital Future Camp” introduced dozens of high school students to an enticing two-day menu of career-based workshops this week. The campers – rising sophomores, juniors and seniors – learned about employment opportunities during eight sessions (four each) in gaming and web and interactive media; developed personal computer games and mobile applications; networked with faculty, staff and students; and got a slice of campus life during an overnight stay in college housing. The event, which has attracted capacity crowds since its debut in 2012, culminated in a gaming tournament Wednesday afternoon.
