Alaska Tech Learners Summer Camp

Alaska Tech Learners 2019 participants in front of Horse Tail Falls in Valdez, Alaska

Alaska Tech Camp

The coursework at the Alaska Tech Camp for the summer of 2022 consists of a college-level computing class called TECH A120: Commercial Web Page Design, in which the students will learn to make mobile ready websites using HTML5 and CSS3. This course requires good skills in professional, desktop computing. 

Tuition, housing, travel, and all meals for qualified program participants will be paid for by the NSF and offered at no charge to the student.  

In the classroom:
Plan on being in class 6-8 hours each day. Computers and all course materials are provided for students. Students should bring pen and paper for note taking. 

Outdoor adventures:
Here in Valdez we think time outdoors is important too. Prepare to go outside for moderately active adventures every afternoon. Think hiking, beach combing, and glacier exploring.  

After hours: 
Students will stay in PWSC campus housing. Camp mentors will provide dorm supervision, coordinate evening group activities, and oversee group meals - all meals are included for students!
