LPS students learn technology through Summer camp
For most students June means school is out for the summer. But, for 280 local students, classes are in. Lincoln Public Schools is hosting their Summer Technology Program.
Four sets of one week classes, students are taught how to build, create, and discover with various programs. Some classes offer coding, stop-motion, programing robots, and Photoshop.
"Being able to figure out, being able to problem solve, there's always that base layer and then there are just so many other paths you can go through," said Brent Jarosz, Program Coordinator.
The students in Thursday's class focused on creating movie trailers using stop-motion video and clay.
"We did all of the editing, all of the photoshoping and all of the stills," said Abi Nespor, 11.
Nespor is interested in all aspects of the technology field.
"I either want to code video games, work for NASA, or be an illustrator," said Nespor, 11.
Other students at the camp were just as passionate.
"I really like animation and I've even done some short clips of my own, so for me to do this class it was just "clay-mation," I've never done "clay-mation" before so I thought it would be interesting to just do another branch, said Kaleb Gray.
The camp goes for another two weeks and there are still plenty of spots for more students.
