Program Details:

Join us for a week of live and virtual sessions during our Tech-In-A-Box camp.

This exciting virtual workshop immerses middle school students in the wonder of coding and design to complete STEM challenges. Students will be introduced to JavaScript coding in block and text-based form, simple app creation, and popular IT careers.

Join us for this virtual cyber adventure! As part of this program, Tech-In-A-Box supply kits will be mailed to every registered student to use during the virtual sessions. Students are able to keep the supply kit permanently! Additional hands-on activities are included in the supply kit so students can continue learning at home. On-demand digital resources will also be provided to complement lessons learned in the virtual classroom.

We will meet via Google Classroom live from 10:00am-12:00pm daily.

This camp is generously sponsored by the Lipscomb Family Foundation.
