FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

ADTECH Student Technology Camp To Be Held
at Cal State Dominguez Hills

ADTECH/Verizon sponsor technology camp for 60 South Bay students starting June 27

Carson, CA – Sixty students from across the South Bay will participate in the weeklong 2005 ADTECH Student Technology Camp being held on the campus of California State University, Dominguez Hills beginning Monday, June 27.

This year’s tech camp is made possible through generous funding from Verizon. The ADTECH Consortium (representing 14 local school districts, universities, community colleges and vendor partners) will host the 2005 Student Technology Camp.

The weeklong technology camp will engage students in various technology-related subjects, such as video production, networking, printing, broadcast television, computer hardware and the use of peripheral devices. Additionally, each student will receive a PalmOne handheld computer for use during the week, and will take the device home upon completion of the camp.

Skills learned at tech camp provide students with a working knowledge of many technology tools used in the workforce today and in the future. As the Verizon Foundation seeks proposals that can improve critical skills in literacy proficiency, academic achievement and work preparedness, the ADTECH Student Technology Camp is a fitting use of these grant funds.

The 60 7th and 8th grade students involved in the ADTECH Student Technology Camp this year come from schools throughout the consortium, including Palos Verdes, Lennox, Torrance, Hermosa Beach, Lawndale, Wiseburn, El Segundo and Inglewood. Students were selected by classroom teachers for their interest in technology and enthusiasm for learning.

For more information on the 2005 Student Technology Camp and other programs sponsored by ADTECH, please contact John Umekubo, Executive Director of ADTECH at john@eduplace.net or visit the ADTECH web site at www.adtech.org.
