When school lets out for the summer most kids look forward to going to the beach or hanging out with their friends and playing video games. However, some kids strive for something more. That’s where Millersville University’s (MU) Technology and Engineering Camps come in. For the past 25 years the Department of Applied Engineering, Safety & Technology (AEST) has hosted camps for students entering grades 2-12. This year, the camps will take place June 18-22 and July 9-13.

Expanding on the popularity of annual favorites using LEGO, robotics, coding and graphic design, new offerings for 2018 include robot soccer, robot programming & printing, beginning to code and JavaScript programming.

The MU Technology and Engineering Camps are entering their 26th year and provide educational experiences for students outside the realm of the traditional classroom. The camps focus on various aspects of technology, but not all are computer-based. Many involve fabrication, and problem solving is often at the heart of the camps. The camps are fun and educational at the same time.

“The types of camps we offer can’t be offered anywhere. Many require laboratories, specialized software and expensive equipment,” says Dr. Len Litowitz, department chair of AEST.

MU technology & engineering education majors typically assist some of the more popular camps. This provides them with valuable teaching experiences.

  1. Good morning! A small correction/expansion, Tech Camps are actually being offered June 18-22 (happening now/registration closed), June 25-29 (registration closed for most camps/some still open), July 9 – 13, July 16 – 20 and one camp running July 30 – August 3.
