The 2010 Upstate Information Technology Camp activities are geared toward learning more about the growing and exciting field of Information Technology. Students and faculty from Furman and USC Upstate along with IT industry representatives will discuss the wide range of exciting career options available in IT and the necessary skill sets for succeeding in these careers. Attendees will be engaged in activities designed to reinforce this learning, including the assembly of their own laptop computer -- which they keep once the IT Camp ends!
Open to 9th, 10th, and 11th grade students from upstate and surrounding counties who would like to learn more about computers and technology and who have a potential interest in a career in information technology (IT). Public, private, and homeschooled students are all welcome to apply.
Camp activities will be held on three consecutive Saturdays: April 10, 17, and 24, 2010. The April 10 session (8:30 – 3:00) and April 17 session (8:30 – 4:00) will be held on the Furman University campus and the April 24 session (8:30 – 4:30) will be held on the campus of USC Upstate.
Nothing! The camp is free to those selected to attend thanks to our sponsors.
