CSUMB Offers Summer Technology Camps for Middle and High School Youth

Campers from 2016 enjoy a range of technology and team-based activities.

SEASIDE, Calif., June 1, 2017 – CSUMB’s Institute for Innovation and Economic Development will host two uniquely tailored technology camps this summer for middle and high school youth from July 10 through July 21, 2017. Both camps provide an opportunity for students to experience a university environment while learning a wide range of technology-based skills and abilities from university professors.

The 2017 TIDE@CSUMB camp ($625), for high school students, starts with trending technology workshops in the fundamentals of coding and app design, followed by teamwork to create a business plan and pitch for a new startup company using the "Junior Achievement Be Entrepreneurial" program. The TIDE@CSUMB camp is held in partnership with CalGe.org.

At the 2017 CODECamp@CSUMB ($675), middle-school students will learn the fundamental programming skills for Arduino using the Arduino development environment, design hardware devices using Arduino Uno R3 and develop cloud connected and controlled Arduino devices, in a collaborative and fun environment.

Both camps include daily lunch along with an infusion of team-based games, collaboration, sports and bike rides. Please refer to the CSUMB IIED Youth Summer Programs page to apply for the camps and for more detailed information.
