1 5 SUMMER EXPLORATION CAMPS

2 5 SUMMER EXPLORATION CAMPS Are you naturally curious? Do you like to fix things, make things, or understand how things work by taking them apart? Wouldn t it be great if you could earn college credit while having fun exploring your passion? If you re in high school and ready to test out a college class, the Summer Exploration Camps are the perfect opportunity! Earn college credit and have fun. It s a great way to stay active this summer. Meet new people who have similar interests, and test out college courses that have been specially designed for this summer exploration format. Studying science or technology can go hand-in-hand with having fun especially in the summer, when you re free to explore the things that really get you thinking. Each of the Harrisburg University Summer Exploration Camps takes a unique look at a field of science or technology, or the business of science and technology. While learning is the key goal for the program, you ll be surprised how much fun you can have letting your imagination run wild with the potential inventions, technologies, or scientific issues you can explore. Plus many of the camps allow you to earn college credits. These camps except where noted are for incoming high school students through high school seniors. All the camps are day camps. Students should come to camp with food, snacks and drinks for the day.

4 Exploring Geographic Information Systems (GSTC-100) From Amazon drones to smart phones, geographic information systems, or GIS, are where it s at in today s technology!

(Imagine light bulbs as small as bacteria!) Do you like hands-on experiments and problem solving? Do you want to change the world? If you answered Yes! then Nanobiotechnology Explorations is here for you this summer! Nanobiotechnology is the study of how existing elements in nature are used to invent or improve technologies. These tiny nano-structures can be used in everything from engineering materials, fuels, textiles, medicine, the environment and more.

5 Exploring Entrepreneurship & Innovation (MEBA 100) Think you could run your own business? Would you be surprised to know that many high-school students have successfully kicked off a business that goes on to succeed? We re talking about more than lemonade stands or babysitting. Even though that s a fine starting place for a budding entrepreneur! If you ve got big ideas, or just a nagging curiosity about solving a problem, you might have the right stuff to become an entrepreneur. This program will walk you through a simple process for seeing if your idea has potential as a business. Maybe you just want to be the boss and run the company there s a place for that kind of drive in this program too! Two-credit day camp I Cost: $568 Aug. 10th - 14th I Milton Hershey School, 1201 Homestead Lane, Hershey, PA Exploring Computer Coding Programming fosters creativity, reasoning, and problem solving. The programmer gets the opportunity to create something from nothing, use logic to turn programming constructs into a form that a computer can run, and, when things don t work quite as well as expected, use problem solving to figure out what has gone wrong. Programming is a fun and the skills learned from it can be useful both in school and at work, even if your career has nothing to do with computers. The non-credit camp will introduce you to the most widely commercial programming language used for gaming, C++. In this weeklong camp we will go over the basics of the language, giving you a good foundational understanding of the programming language syntax, the machine it s running on, and how to effectively create an application. We will walk step by step through the concepts and skills needed to start yourself on the path to becoming an independent game developer. There are also programming puzzles at the end of most chapters for you to try, which will help improve your programming skills. There are also programming puzzles during that for you to try, which will help improve your programming skills.
