computerA new and probably fascinating program for children who love technology will be available at Cal State San Bernardino. This innovative camp for kids will undoubtedly help these “tech wizards” with a unique opportunity.

Free scholarships that total $6,000 are available for students for the upcoming “TechXploration Career Camp for Kids.” Sponsored by “Kids That Code,” applications for the scholarships are currently being accepted through May 18. Parents and guardians who live in San Bernardino or Riverside counties and are at least 18-years-old may enter their children in the opportunity drawing.

The tech career camp will be held from June 29 to July 2 and from July 6-10. Both sessions will be held from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. The early admission registration fee is $299 per child if paid by June 5 but after that date the registration fee increases to $599.

Parents may win a chance to send their children to this summer camp that can help nurture their curiosity in technology.

“Kids that Code” is a K-8 education company that was created by a student team from Cal State San Bernardino and members of the Catalyst Business Accelerator at the CSUSB Inland Empire Center of Entrepreneurship. They specialize in teaching young children computer programming, game design, mobile apps and more.

All students will receive hands-on training, activities and projects in computer programming, game development, Web design, mobile app development and techpeneurship.
