FAYETTE, Iowa (June 12, 2014) – Young and old alike are fascinated by computers and what they can do. The Upper Iowa University summer computer camp proved the point again this week. Camper Katherine Oakley shares what she's learning with her grandfather, Jim Oakley of Oelwein. Instructor for the camp was Dr. James Jacobs, assistant professor of information technology. Camps were held for two age groups and focused on hardware, image and audio capture and editing, basic computer applications and programming and even drone flight.
