“The camps are designed to help students learn about technology concepts and opportunities while developing critical thinking and problem solving skills in a fun engaging environment,” said Dr. Mamie Griffin, faculty member and camp coordinator.

There is a $50 application fee for each camp. The deadline for receipt of applications and fees is June 15, 2012.  For an application and additional details, contact Lisa Augustine, projects coordinator, at (601) 877-6494.
