Forsyth Tech brought “summer camp” into the 21st century last year with “Destination Forsyth Tech,” a four-week enrichment program for kids 8-13 focused on creativity through technology. Participants enjoyed activities like developing 3-D games, designing apps and learning computer programming, as well as more traditional summer camp activities such as art classes. For older kids, 12-15, there were classes in babysitting fundamentals and pediatric first aid. According to instructor Our 21st-Century Summer Camp Nathan Sink, the goal of engaging with younger students is to get them excited about learning in ways that will lead them to take college courses later on. With enthusiastic feedback from participants and parents, the program was deemed a success, and the second “Destination Forsyth Tech” will be held this June 26 through July 27. Parents are encouraged to register their kids early, as classes are expected to fill quickly. Applications and course information are available here.
