The Salish Kootenai College Flathead Tech4Good (FT4G) Advisory Board is currently planning for our 2018 Native Tech Summer Camps series!
FT4G hosted their inaugural Summer Computer Camp for 7th-12th grade students and recent high school graduates at SKC in Pablo on July 10-13, 2017. (Missoulian article)
2017 Summer Campers received an introduction to media and tech careers through engaging and culturally grounded activities.
The free camp encouraged campers to work together to create, troubleshoot, and improve websites, data visualizations, sound engineering, and game concepts through a series of intensive hands-on workshops on Media and Web Design, Computer Hardware and Programming, and Game Development.
While the camp was open to any “rising” 7th – 12th graders and recent high school graduates, enrolled members of native tribes and their descendants were specifically encouraged.
Like last summer, for 2018, Tech4Good Summer Camp seeks faculty at Salish Kootenai College and other tech and art experts to develop and teach in a series of engaging hands-on workshops and short presentations.
