Students learn at Computer Science Camp in Kanab
Utah State University Extension, in collaboration with the Utah STEM Action Center and Kane School District, hosted the first Youth X-Tech Computer Science Camp.
During the four-day camp, 40 local youth got hands-on experience with Arduinos, Ozobots, Makey-Makeys, virtual reality, spheros, computer programming, Python and coding drones.
Quality computer science camps, like this one, usually cost $250-$300 per child. USU Extension 4-H was able to provide this quality camp free of charge. This was made possible through a grant from the Utah STEM Action Center and support from local talent.
A huge thank you to:
• Daniel Thompson – for bringing an incredible VR experience to our students.
• Jason Kirby (from Garkane) – for sharing your expertise with Arduinos.
• Tom Avant (from Iron Rock Engineering) – for offering hands-on instruction regarding the use of drones in engineering.
