Northern Michigan University's Glenn T. Seaborg Center is partnering with the Michigan Council of Women in Technology to offer Camp Infinity, a series of week-long, hands-on sessions that introduce Marquette County girls entering grades 5-8 to computer and internet technologies. The camp will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday, July 22 through Friday, July 26 at NMU.

Expert instructors will guide students through a range of age-appropriate topics spanning game design, app development and robotics programming. Participants will also meet with professional women and men who work in technological fields and learn about related careers.

Campers in 5th and 6th grade will program Dash robots using block-based programming and create animation/simple games using Scratch Programming. Campers in 7th and 8th grade will build fully functional apps with MIT App Inventor and enhance their critical thinking and problem-solving skills while programming Lego SPIKE Prime robots. Students will participate in mini-sessions that highlight programming skills and real-world uses of technology.

The Michigan Council of Women in Technology is holding Camp Infinity on various dates at 10 locations across the state. The cost of $100 per student includes a light breakfast and lunch each day. Scholarships are available.

Christina King, a teacher at Aspen Ridge School, will direct the camp at NMU. For more information, or to register, visit and click on “Load More” to see the Technology Summer Camp link with NMU's logo. Or scan the QR code below.
