Digit All Systems (DAS) Tech-Ed Summer Camp will offer a technology learning and fun camp for Baltimore area middle and high school students. DAS has been serving the greater Baltimore community since 1999 as a non-profit alternative for technology education and literacy programs for students and citizens. Lance Lucas, DAS CEO, represents a new breed of social entrepreneur emerging across the country that is placing the needs of people above profits. Lucas is convinced that many students will not be able to meet simple entry level requirements for the jobs in technology as long as school systems continue to lag behind the curve in introducing and maintaining technology curricula. Through its programs, DAS is successfully bridging the "digital-divide" one student at a time, with innovative in-school and after-school tech curricula and professional certifications in many underserved Baltimore communities.

This summer, DAS introduces the Tech-Ed Summer Camp Baltimore's for boys and girls ages 10-17. Four computer technology camps with morning and afternoon sessions will be offered Monday July 2, 2007 through Saturday August 25, 2007. The camp sessions include Microsoft Office® 2007 Xtreme, Lego MindStorm® Robotics, The Urban Video Game Academy ™ for Video Game Design and Programming, and Computer Repair Essentials. The fee for each two-week camp session is $249.00.

"Our program provides a summer learning and fun alternative for Baltimore youths who want to get a headstart on software skills, some of which are not currently offered in many area schools. We have a great curriculum taught by some of the top area IT professionals in the greater Baltimore/Washington DC area. And our credentials combine with a fervent commitment to make a difference in the future of our kids, by integrating learning computer technology with career opportunity," says Jean Henry, President of DAS.

DAS Tech-Ed Summer Camp enrollment is limited and on a first-come, first-served application basis. Applications are available online at http://www.dasnow.com or by calling 443-729-2469.
