Students with Mag Lab stafferTALLAHASSEE, Fla. (July 6, 2018) – Twenty-two area high school students recently attend a free summer technology camp at Tallahassee Community College. The camp, called Let’s Manage and Secure Technology, was designed to encourage their interest in technology and other fields in science, engineering and mathematics.

This is the third year in a row that TCC has offered the camp. This year, the camp attracted students from Leon High School, Chiles High School and Florida High.

Campers participated in a hands-on activity with circuit boards and sessions on computer disassembly and assembly, servers, cybersecurity, network cabling and graphic arts. 

On Wednesday morning, the group visited the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory at Florida State University. That afternoon, the students received their own Raspberry Pi mini-computers to assemble, use and take home.  

On the final day of camp, family members were invited to attend to enjoy students’ presentations about what they had learned.

TCC faculty and staff members Carlos Torres, Jessica Jones, Carlos Miranda, Byron Todd, Mike Vickers and Lloyd Boyette coordinated and led each day’s activities.
