2022 Techie Camp Registration (DCPL)

With support from the Nordson Corporation Foundation, TECH CORPS will implement its Techie Camp program in partnership with the DeKalb County Public Library for elementary school students during the summer.

Techie Camp is a full day, week-long program designed to engage elementary and middle school students in hands-on, interactive STEM-related activities. Students take a deep dive into subject matter focused on Robotics, Programming, Android App Development, 3D Printing, Digital Fabrication or Web Development and emerge with skills that are useful in today’s classroom and tomorrow's workplace. Each Techie Camp concludes with students presenting their final project to their parents and peers on Friday afternoon. Below are additional notes about the Techie Camps:
  • The topic for all of the Techie Camps will be Programming with Scratch.
