Students, ages 14-18, in the southwestern region of the United States who are interested in technology, engineering or computer science are invited to come to Southern Utah University for the Technology, Engineering and Computer Science (TECS) Summer Camp. Students will experience “college life” by staying on campus and learning through hands-on experiences from professors and professionals in the field of their choice. It will be a great opportunity to get advanced experience in the field and make new friends. Register today to attend this camp!
