Three upcoming summer camps at NRCC

5/5/2017

New River Community College will be offering three free summer camps for local middle and high school students in Dublin and Christiansburg.

CSI: Dublin

Twenty-four rising 9th through 12th grade students will have the opportunity to solve “The Strange Case of Alespicia Snard” and feel like a detective.

The camp will run June 12 through 16, in Dublin. The week-long, hands-on camp will work outdoors “in the field” as well as process data in the lab. Professor Dennis DuBuc, former police officer and head of NRCC’s administration of justice department, and local law enforcement will help students solve the case.

The week will end with a program open to family and friends for participants to show their work.

Each camper will receive a t-shirt.

Applications are available from the schools’ guidance counselors. Applications are due Wednesday, May 17. Return applications and a $25 refundable deposit to your guidance counselor or

Four areas of the cyber world will be covered during the week-long day camp: Cyber Safety Games, where students will create their own game encouraging good security practices; Lego Robotics; 3-D Printing and Drones; and Cyber Security Detective Agency, where security software will be used to solve mysteries.

Each area will be instructed by a professional from the information technology field.

Campers will receive lunch every day and a t-shirt, USB and a Raspberry Pi at the end of the week.
