CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, August 5 - August 11, 1994 - 27 Microcomputer repair course offered A microcomputer systems service and repair course will be offered by the Electronics Technology at Delaware Tech Southern Campus begin- ning in the fall. With the intention of meeting the needs of the community, this one- year diploma program provides the student with the knowledge and skills needed to diagnose and repair faults on IBM and IBM compatible computer systems. Skills learned on these machines can be immediately applied to the repair and maintenance of all types of microcomputer sys- tems. In order to meet changing technologies, the program was developed to provide focus by application, training through laboratory demonstra- tion and student participation. Topics include electronics theory, pro- gramming languages, microcomputer operations and applications of pe- ripheral devices, Designed for individuals who have completed high school or achieved the high school equivalency, the program begins late in August and follows the sequential course work through to spring completion. Individuals interested in this program should contact Richard Stevens, electronics technology cfiairman, at 856-5400, ext. 221. At the National Youth Science Camp, delegates spend as much time outdoors as in labs and lectures.

Lewes student, Koty Sharp, attends National Youth Science Camp m W.a. When Koty Sharp headed for science camp in West Virginia this past June, she never expected to find herself kayaking on the New River. But the 17-year-old Lewes native is excited about the opportunities available to her as a Delaware delegate to the National Youth Science Camp. A graduate of Cape Henlopen High School, Sharp, the daughter of Jonathan and Gwyneth Sharp, is attending the honors camp in Bartow, W.Va., where she is en- joying a unique combination of scientific and outdoor education. The National Science Camp was designed to honor the na- tion's most outstanding science students and to motivate them to achieve their full potential as sci- entists and as people. Each year, the National Youth Science camp invites two delegates from each state and the District of Columbia who excel in science, leadership and community involvement. For one month the camp fosters scien- tific creativity and problem solv- ing skills while stimulating dele- gates to evaluate their goals and responsibilities. The cornerstone of the camp program is a series of prominent lecturers who daily visit the camp, sharing expertise on a wide range of topics. "I've enjoyed the diver- sity of subjects. I always look for- ward to lectures; every one so far has been really interesting," Sharp said. To spplement the lecture se- ries, the Science Camp Staff, made up of educators and Science Camp alumni, offers hands-on learning opportunities in comput- er science, natural science, physi- cal science, applied arts and mu- sic. Although she has "never been the artistic type," Sharp said she frequently finds herself at the art shack and enjoys the art program very much. All students have had the chance to backpack in the Morion- gahela National Forest while a few scale the cliffs of Seneca Rocks, explore subterranean caves or kayak. "I'm really psy- ched for the kayaking trip. I've never done that before," Sharp said. The National Youth Science Camp students also visit Wash- ington, D.C,, where they tour the Smithsonian, monuments and government laboratories. While there, the delegates attend a pre- sentation by Dr. Robert Gallo, pi- oneer in AIDS research at the Na- tional Institute of Health. The camp is free and transportation is provided, funded through a vari- ety of contributors. Sharp will attend Mount Holyoke College in Massachu setts in the fall to study geology or chemical engineering. In the meantime, she has enjoyed her Science Camp experience tremen- dously. "I've learned a lot of in- teresting science, but the name Science Camp could be mislead- ing because there are so many oth- er things here that have nothing to do with science," Sharp noted.
