Tech Camp 2021 will take place Tuesday, July 20 through Friday, July 23, 2021, daily from 9am to 4pm at the historic Franklin Junior High, 4801 Franklin Ave in Des Moines, Iowa.

As the flagship program of Tech Journey, Tech Camp is an immersive annual summer camp experience for central Iowa students in grades 8 through 12. Each year at Tech Camp, invited students attend inspirational keynote sessions, learning sessions and other activities to explore and engage with technology. Tech Camp is led by local technology professionals who give their time and talent to serve as volunteer facilitators and mentors. Students not only learn about technology, but they also get to personally interact with professionals and discuss education, careers, jobs, skills and the like.

Once a student is invited, he or she can continue to attend Tech Camp each summer of his or her high school career. Each year students are offered different technology learning sessions across tracks of software development, hardware and physical computing and web development and media. Examples of this year’s sessions include Inside a Computer, CAD with Onshape, Making with Hummingbird Kits, Electronics and Breadboarding, Arduino, Machine Learning, Agile, 3D Game Development with PlayCanvas, Creating Web Apps, Cloud Computing, Music Production with Python, Web Accessibility and CyberSecurity. Meals and snacks are provided daily.
