The Talent Search programs at Morehead State University will hold a Technology Camp from June 9th until June 15, 2013. The camp is for rising freshmen. Approximately Fifty 8th grade students come to campus to spend nights in the dorm, eat on campus in the dining hall, take technology and creative writing classes and relax and have fun in the evening activities.  

Students learn a lot about, and will construct many technology projects while on campus. The central theme for the classes is focusing on STEMSTEM is science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.  Last year, students constructed solar/battery operated cars, rockets, mousetrap cars, solar ovens, solar fountains and towers made of balsam wood. The students then tested their construction abilities and a contest was held in each of the categories. Students were awarded first, second, and third place ribbons. The winning projects were showcased to parents at the end of the camp.  

Activities that may take place in the evenings, range from bowling, a cultural trip, movie night, swimming, the MSU Wellness Center obstacle course and zip lining, a dance party and a night at the Jenny Wiley Theatre.  

The combined Talent Search staff, Tutor Counselors, Classroom Instructors, and volunteers collaborate to make this camp enjoyable for everyone!
