Mop Top Summer Campers learn and explore the latest computer-related technologies and software applications. Using hands-on learning activities, students will build a computer that really works; learn the basics of web page design and publishing to design their own web pages incorporating sound and video; create basic animations and cartoons, illustrate and create artwork that they silkscreen on t-shirts. But that's not all, students become real crime scene investigators and use hands-on activities to understand forensics. To stay fit, CeCe, a personal trainer with Raleigh Personal Training, will provide fun and excitement while teaching students about nutrition, wellness, fitness, and the benefits of exercise. As an added treat, Mop Top Campers will participate in the 2010 Omega Psi Phi Conclave Parade on July 24, 2010 in Raleigh, NC.
