Local Tech Heroes just wrapped up its first of three Summer STEM Camps in cooperation with Boys and Girls Clubs of Columbus. For five days, more than 40 students participated in ‘Hero Challenges’ by learning and applying new ‘Super Powers’ to solve problems in their community.
Over 100 visitors in the Gahanna Parks and Rec summer camp programs were recently challenged to think, design, and solve unique puzzles using emerging technology at the first Local Tech Heroes Summer Program!
