Forty high school students from across Pennsylvania explored potential careers in Penn College’s fourth annual “Designing a Digital Future Camp” on Tuesday and Wednesday. The campers, entering 10th, 11th or 12th grade this fall, embraced the boundless employment possibilities of gaming, Web design, product design, mobile applications and graphic design during hands-on workshops in the Breuder Advanced Technology and Health Sciences Center and the Bush Campus Center. The popular camp, one of a number offered on campus this summer, is a collaboration of the School of Industrial, Computing & Engineering Technologies and the School of Sciences, Humanities & Visual Communications.
