COBI hosts fourth Technology Camp for high school students

Forty high school students from 25 Toledo, Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan high schools participated in the fourth annual Technology Camp, presented by the UT College of Business and Innovation in July.

Students had the chance to create their own apps, learn about modern business applications of technology, and actually build a computer.

“Our Technology Camp invites curious students into the world of technology where they will explore business technology and how it applies to their daily lives," said COBI Senior Associate Dean Terribeth Gordon-Moore. "They had the opportunity to explore both the power and the fun of information technology (IT), and we know that some of the students have been so enthralled by this experience that they will decide to study IT.”

"Computer technology is becoming an essential life skill for young people," she added, "and this Camp was an outstanding opportunity for them to immerse themselves in a technology learning experience at literally no cost to them."

Corporate sponsors for the 2014 Camp were ASUS and Eaton Corporation.
