ELIZABETH CITY, N.C. – Elizabeth City State University is set to offer students in high school and college, as well as members of the community the chance to unlock their potential in app development.

The two, week-long camps are designed to take participants on an unforgettable journey in the fast-paced tech industry. In both camps, innovation will meet fun as participants build their tech skills and explore the exciting world of app development.

" We're living in a mobile-centric society, an era where mobile devices have become ubiquitous,” said Penny Royal, lab manager and special events coordinator. “From communication to entertainment, shopping to productivity, people rely heavily on mobile apps for various aspects of their daily lives. Therefore, creating innovative and user-friendly mobile apps is more relevant than ever”

Participants will work with experienced tech professionals and learn valuable lessons that will help them foster their creativity and build technical skills. The high school camp will take place June 10-14, from 8 a.m. to noon in the Gilchrist Complex Room 107. The following week, June 17-21, the Free App Camp invites college students and the community to their week of hands-on experience in creating their own apps.

"Successfully completing an app camp and seeing a project come to life can instill a sense of achievement and pride. The journey from ideation to execution, and ultimately delivering a finished product can be incredibly rewarding,” Royal added.

Interested students and community participants are encouraged to register by June 8 to secure their spot in Free App Camp. Space is limited.
