Tech-lovers aged nine to 14 are invited to sign up for the Halifax-based summer Digital Discovery Camp.  

A partnership between Digital Nova Scotia and the Discovery Centre, the camp offers youngsters the chance to participate in a range of tech-oriented activities.

This summer, students will discover robotics and learn programming skills using LEGO NXT technology and new Lego EV3 models.

They will take apart advanced devices, deconstruct a computer and participate in a soldering workshop.

Campers will learn how a digital image becomes a 3-D model using specialized printers. Interactive tools will allow video-gamers to create their own characters and storylines with gaming development concepts and skills.

The Digital Discovery Camp is run with local industry participation and support. This is the second year it has been offered. This summer, there will be two camps. The first, for kids aged 9-11, will take place July 20-24. The second, a new advanced camp for youth aged 12-14, will be held August 17-21.
