Approximately 40 area high school students from throughout Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan attended the camp which immersed them into the vast possibilities of modern technology. Participating students had the chance to create their own apps, learn web design, discover modern business applications of technology, create an iMovie and actually build a computer.
"Computer technology is becoming an essential life skill for young people, and this camp is an outstanding opportunity for them to immerse themselves in a technology learning experience at literally no cost to them," noted Darlene Stevens, enrollment management specialist in the College of Business and Innovation. "Students were able to explore both the power and the fun of information technology (IT). We know that some of the students will become so enthralled by this experience that they will decide to study IT at UT.”
COBI provides the entire camp experience free of charge for the participants.
