Think Tank to Shark Tank Summer Camp

There are still a few spots remaining in the youth summer camp, “Think Tank to Shark Tank: From Engineering to Entrepreneurship Youth Camp,” sponsored by UA’s H.K. Barker Center for Economic Education.

In this one-week camp, scheduled July 20 to July 24 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day, youth in Grades 6 through 10 will learn to engineer solutions to problems and emerge as informed, successful entrepreneurs. Students will engage in a needs assessment, conduct research, design a product, and market it through fun, thoughtful, social experiences. Each day, students will learn and apply new skills and understanding in engineering, economics and entrepreneurship.

Camp registration is $200 for the week, which includes all lunches, supplies and a camp T-shirt. To register or to learn more about this camp, visit the Barker Center for Economic Education online. Questions about the camp can be directed to Dr. Brad Maguth at bmaguth@uakron.edu or ext. 7763.
