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 or ext. 7763.
