Kids Can Understand Technology Too

Scraps of paper litter the gymnasium floor and the tiny people scurry to pick them up, anticipating their next fun-filled activity. During the Hook, Line & Net 2000 Conference, Stem-Net has provided a Kids Camp. Kids Camp is a day camp for kids to learn about computers and technology.
As soon as the airplanes were picked up, Heather King, another Kids Camp participant, introduced a game called Doctor Dodge Ball.' The kids split up into two teams and played a few games.
The kids spent a while in the gym and left in high spirits, anticipating the next activities lined up for them. At the end of Kids Camp, the kids will leave after having learned just a little more about technology and computers, and after interacting with other kids, they will develop into a more sociable person with a higher confidence level. Kids camp will help to mold the children into better people who have a knowledge of, and the skills for, basic technology and computers.
