KCTCS Offers ‘Career Craze’ at Area Campuses, Including Bowling Green

career craze 500

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (6/14/13) – Twenty-two middle school age students got to do more this summer than just play video games, they got to design video games. These area students attended Southcentral Kentucky Community and Technical College’s (SKYCTC) Career Craze, a hands-on camp featuring gaming programming and technology.

The three day camp gave these seventh, eighth, and ninth graders the chance to see how video games are made and with the help of the SKYCTC Interactive Digital Center staff they were able to design and create their own unique game.

“One thing I liked about the camp was using the skills I learned about programming to build my own video game,” said Camille Brandow, a freshman at Bowling Green High School. “After this week I am considering a career in programming,” she said.

“It’s amazing how much we learned is such a short time,” says Hailey Thomas Turner, a student at South Warren Middle School. “The teachers and advisors were great,” she said. “There is no way I could have learned this on my own.”

Lt. Governor Jerry Abramson is the honorary chair of the KCTCS Career Craze initiative, with camps going on at KCTCS colleges throughout the state this summer.

"As honorary chair of this initiative, I’m thrilled to promote our community and technical college system and encourage students and their families to consider a technical career," said Lt. Gov. Jerry Abramson. "Parents often overlook the great paying career opportunities that their children can access with a community college certificate or associate degree. This makes KCTCS’ Career Craze summer camp program even more valuable to our Kentucky families."

Southcentral Kentucky Community and Technical College will hold one more Career Craze Camp July 8 through July 11 at the College’s Transpark Center in Bowling Green. This camp will be open to high school students who are interested in Robotics and will allow the students to learn robotic programming at the new FANUC Robotics Training Center. The camp is offered for free to the students.

All 16 KCTCS colleges will host two camps during the summer. The camps will highlight different business/industry sectors such as utility, manufacturing, healthcare, etc. Students will learn more about each occupation and how it leads to high wage, high demand careers.
