Dixie State hosts tech, computer science camp for girls
ST. GEORGE, Utah — A technology and computer science camp at Dixie State University this summer is geared to give girls hands-on experience in the field.
Starting June 6, DSU is partnering with Girls Go Digital, a program that provides opportunities for girls to learn more about computers, programming, technology and design. The camp is available for girls ages 8 to 18 and will teach them how to hack, design and code, according to a press release from the university.
Throughout four days, the girls will participate in 14 classes and receive hands-on instruction. Divided by age and experience level, the release states, classes will cover programming, robotics, micro controlling and soldering, pixel art, photography, e-textiles and web design.
The camp starts from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and runs until June 9.
A session will also take place at Southern Utah University in Cedar City from June 20-23 and in northern Utah throughout the summer.
Registration is $295.
