Nashville Technology Council’s Summer Camps Program Gains Greater Reach by Going Virtual

 

Greater Nashville Technology CouncilNashville, TN – The Greater Nashville Technology Council (NTC) will today wrap up its 2020 NTC Technology Summer Camps program, held virtually for the first time. Due to the COVID-19 Coronavirus pandemic, NTC quickly pivoted to host 14 virtual camps for a total of 150 students aged 4th grade through high school.
 
One of the advantages of going virtual was that the instructors didn’t need to be Nashville-based; students were able to benefit from working with experts from across the country. In addition, going virtual made the camps more accessible to students throughout Middle Tennessee, including Davidson County, Robertson County, Sumner County, Wilson County and Williamson County.
