Rensselaer at Hartford’s 27th season of Summer Computer Challenge was held July 9 through Aug. 3, serving children from three Hartford area elementary schools.

Thirty-five students were involved in the free program designed to increase computer literacy and research skills. The children interact creatively through hands-on computer training. The computer programs used during camp focus on the integration of language arts, reading, writing, and mathematics skills.

The theme for this year’s program was “Go Green!” and the children created projects exploring the environment, energy, and conservation. Field trips to fun and educational destinations rounded out the program.

Rensselaer is grateful to numerous individuals and organizations for their support and commitment to the camp. This year’s Summer Computer Challenge was made possible by contributors including: the Aetna Foundation; the Bank of America Charitable Foundation; the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving; and the Knox Foundation.
