It's not too late to register your sixth, seventh, or eighth grader for LPISD's summer technology camps!
Two camps will be held this summer at the Instructional Technology Center (9832 Spencer, next to Baker Sixth Grade Campus) for incoming sixth, seventh and eighth graders. Camp registration is $50 per child per camp.
From June 14 through 18, students will learn about the production of video stories, using a digital camera to capture their photographs and video. LPISD Instructional Technology Specialists will help them edit their footage into digital stories that will be shared with family and friends during a showcase on Friday evening. The camp will be Monday through Friday from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. and will include a field trip to a local television station to see how the professionals create their video stories.
In July, students will learn about robotics and programming. The July camp will be July 12 through 16 from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. Students will learn about robotics with the Lego Mindstorm NXT robotics kits. In addition, students will learn how to program using Scratch, a graphical programming language developed by MIT. A Friday evening gathering will showcase the students' creations. The camp also includes a field trip to a local manufacturer of undersea robotics equipment.
