Students in fourth through 12th grades at Edgefield County Youth Empowerment Center’s Summer STEM Camp, attended a two-day Apple Camp in Augusta during their technology week.

Campers expanded their digital creativity through hands-on projects. They learned coding skills with Sphero Robots, which taught them how to solve problems logically through the fundamentals of code and movie production. They also learned how to create Hollywood-style trailers and stunning 4K-resolution movies.

“Campers were super excited about the things they learned and so were we,” said Marcella Edwards, CEO of the Edgefield County Youth Empowerment Center. “Apple is one of the top technology companies in the world and it was very exciting for our organization to connect with the company.”

Campers received certificate of completion for their participation.

“Our research development team is relentless in attracting extramural funding, creating relationships and developing and implementing strategies that ensures our students are globally competitive and globally competent,” Edwards said. “As an organization, we constantly strive to prepare our students for the real world. We will continue teaching them tangible skills such as: how to work in a team, think critically, and be curious about the things they encounter each day. We want to prepare them to lead productive and successful lives once they leave us and enter into the realm of adulthood.”
