SUNYIT Offers Unqiue Academic Camp For Teens


Summer camps are underway and SUNYIT is giving teens a unique camping experience. The school is hosting ‘SummerITeens,’ a program that offers a variety of science, math and robotics day camps for youth ages 9 through 18. Coordinators say the camps are a way for students to use their brains, while also learning valuable lessons.

“The robot fails all the time, they don’t mind. Because they enjoy the fact that they programmed it, they put it together, they have a goal in mind. And they’re going to keep working until they get there. Not only are they learning about science, math, technology, but they’re learning about stamina and teamwork,” says Elizabeth Rossi, SUNYIT Outreach Director.

If you’re interested, there’s still time to sign up. Camps will be running through August. Visit sunyit/edu/summeriteens or email
