Above is a photo from the 2000 summer graduating class of Camp Telecom, a pilot summer technology program held at the University of Massachusetts, Boston. I taught animation - Director in 1999 and Flash in 2000. I taught high school students alongside their high school classroom teachers. Below is an excerpt from a press release taken from the Massachusetts Telecommunication Council web site.

Camp Telecom, a technology camp for high school sophomores and juniors, is a partnership between the Massachusetts Telecommunications Council, UMass Boston, the Metropolitan School to Career Partnership and Tech Boston. The three-week summer camp provides technical training for high school students and teachers through classroom and hands-on learning experiences. Students and teachers rotate through modules that include Java programming, computer animation and internetworking.
Camp Telecom is made possible by the sponsorship support of MTC member companies. Students at Camp Telecom 2001 were each assigned a sponsor company and created a web site which included research projects about their sponsors.

A special thanks to our sponsors for contributing to the success of Camp Telecom 2001:
Acterna, Alpha Industries, Brooktrout Technology, C-Port Corporation, Deloitte & Touche, Ellacoya Networks, Fidelity, Linx Communications, NMS Communications, RSA Security, and Verizon

In addition to technical skills training, students and teachers gain a new awareness of the telecommunications industry, increase their understanding of emerging technologies, and learn about various types of IT careers and the skills they require. Teachers bring this knowledge and information back into their classroom to create ongoing projects utilizing knowledge gained at Camp Telecom. Students enhance their technical skills, increase their knowledge of the telecommunications industry, and have fun!
