Mohave Community College recruiting teens for STEM camps
KINGMAN – Teens who want to learn how to build apps, take apart computers, play with 3-D printers, drones, learn video game design and much more need to check out Mohave Community College’s Computer and Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM)Camps.
According to the U.S. Department of Commerce, STEM degree holders have higher incomes than those in non-STEM careers. STEM occupations are growing at 17 percent, while other occupations are growing at almost 10 percent.
MCC’s Computer Science Department is offering the camps, which feature fun and engaging ways to educate teens in the STEM fields.
Students on the Neal Campus-Kingman will be involved in many of the camp’s STEM projects. They will be able to play with drones, 3-D printers, virtual reality and more.
The Lake Havasu City campus students will get hands-on practice to take apart, rebuild, and build from scratch a personal computer. They’ll learn about hardware, and some software, for personal computers. The skills they’ll learn are similar to the requirements of the A+ Computer Repair Certification Exam.
MCC’s Bullhead City campus is offering a video game design camp. Teens will learn about software development. They will discover key concepts in computer science by creating basic programs in Java, and apply the concepts in creating actual Android apps. Those camps are 9 a.m. – noon, Monday–Thursday, June 5–15.
There will also be an afternoon video dame design camp on the Kingman Campus. Teens will discover key concepts in computer science by creating basic programs in Java, and apply these concepts in creating games using the popular Game Maker software. The camp is 1-4 p.m., Monday – Thursday, June 5–15.
