This summer the Applied Engineering, Safety and Technology department celebrated its 25th year of Technology and Engineering Summer Camps. The camps are geared toward high school and middle school students to provide them with an academic alternative to sports camps and to introduce them to the programs that Millersville University offers.
This summer the camp included 267 students separated into 25 sections covering 20 different topics.
When the program first started, there was only one camp focused on LEGO Robotics with four sections. Over the years, the topics have started to gear more towards engineering and coding but the original topic of LEGO Robotics is still one of their most well-attended camps.
Dr. Len Litowitz, department chair of AEST, is the director and founder of the summer camps and has seen the camp grow throughout the years. “I would just like to thank everyone who placed their trust in the Technology & Engineering Camp series including all those colleagues here at MU who have had children take the camps.” Some of Litowitz’s most memorable moments have been seeing students come up with creative solutions to open-ended challenges offered in the advanced LEGO camps.
