Emporia State University is offering our annual Techmaker camp June 19-22! A week where kids entering 3rd grade through 9th grade will explore technology and the art of "making". Sessions will be offered in a variety of fields including: multimedia production, programming, robotics, graphical design, manufacturing, and art.  Sessions are being taught by volunteer Emporia State faculty, staff, students, as well as several of our partnering organizations.  Please follow @esulearningtech for the most recent news and updates. 


Please plan on dropping your child off at Visser Hall (North entrance) between 8:00 - 8:30; we will start promptly at 8:35 AM. There are five session per day, each session is drastically different and will provide opportunities to learn about new and emerging technologies. Each session lasts 75 minutes with a break in the morning for a snack, a lunch break and an afternoon break. All sessions will be in Visser Hall, except for one, which is located in the science building. Camp volunteers will escort campers to each session throughout the day. Please arrange to pick up your child by 4:30 each day.

On Friday, we are offering our annual "Techmaker Friday Finale". Please plan on joining us at the Catholic Didde Center (across the street) for supper and awards. A HUGE thank you to the Sertoma Club in Emporia for providing the meal to families and guests. Campers will be showing off their items they made throughout the week and we have some special awards! Also, don't forget to vote for your favorite 2019 TechMaker Logo! Special congratulations to Moe Wertha, winner of the logo design contest for 2018 TechMaker! Congrats, Moe!

We also want to thank our other sponsors including Emporia Coldwell Bankers, Burlington Wolf Creek Nuclear Plant, Kansas State University Lyon County Extension Office, Wichita State Technical College, Credly, InstaVR, Emporia State University Information Technology Department and Navrats. Without our sponsors we could not make this event successful.
