web site was first created in June 1999 by The Information Technology (IT) Camp that was
piloted in Potter County. The IT Camp is a two-week, non-residential program for high
school students. During the course of the ten-day curriculum, approximately twenty
students learned the fundamentals of information systems technology with a strong focus on
Internet and web technologies. The curriculum also included sessions on leadership and
communication skills. In addition to their classroom work, students participated in field
trips to Penn State University and various businesses or industries within Potter County.
Working collaboratively in teams, students created web sites for county and community
organizations. At the end of the camp, these sites were deployed by the local
organizations for which they were developed.
