Mi'kmaq Computer Camp at Dal

October 12, 2006

In August, 50 secondary students from Nova Scotia's African and Mi'kmaq communities participated in "Connecting Communities," a ten-day summer institute in information and communication technology held at Dalhousie University. "With residence replacing the cabin in the woods, and computer lessons in lieu of arts and crafts, these young students were given a unique opportunity to explore the latest technology and to learn more about their culture and history." Students also looked ahead to their own futures with practical sessions in career planning and academic advising. (See http://www.dal.ca/news/2006/10/11/camp.html )
