TCC to host tech-themed summer camp for high school students

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (May 6, 2014) – Area high school students interested in learning about technology will have an opportunity to attend a free, week-long camp this summer at Tallahassee Community College.

The Computers and the Virtual World camp will focus on computer operating systems, hardware and virtualization. The camp runs from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday, July 28, through Thursday, July 31, and from 9 a.m. to noon Friday, August 1.

“One of the primary things that we hope to accomplish is to expose students to the technology of virtualization and give them an overview of the topics surrounding it,” said Carlos Torres, assistant professor of computer networking.

Any high school student curious about the field of technology is encouraged to attend. Torres said the camp is open to students with any level of knowledge and interest.

Torres will lead the camp in room 257 of the Computer Technology building, assisted by members of the TC4 computer club. Guest speakers include Byron Todd, professor of computer networking, and Mike Vickers, manager of the computer lab.

The camp is free to students and open to the first 20 applicants. Lunch and snacks will be provided. Parents will be invited for the last day of the camp for a presentation prepared by the students.

By working with our networking faculty members, students will learn networking magic,” said Kate Stewart, dean of technology and professional programs. “I am excited that through an NSF grant, we have a chance to show students that a career in technology is not only lucrative but fun.
