Local Podcast Features Lawrence Tech Summer Camps
February 29, 2016
Lawrence Technological University started hosting Summer Science Camps four years ago during Michigan’s recession to rekindle the idea that Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math (STEAM) were still educational programs that lead to great paying jobs.
Four years later, STEAM jobs are in great demand -- and so are LTU’s Summer Science Camps.
The camps were featured on the Feb. 22 episode of the M2 TechCast, a podcast about high tech in Michigan produced by veteran Michigan journalist Mike Brennan, owner of the tech news website MITechNews.com, and Matt Roush, director of media relations at LTU.
Last year's camps attracted more than 500 high school students, some 45 percent of whom decided to attend LTU.
Lisa Kujawa, Assistant Provost for Enrollment at LTU, talked about the 20 programs to be offered at this year’s summer camp. She said she expects them all to fill up by May. So if your high school-age student wants to have a college-level experience that could inspire them to pursue high-paying and rewarding careers in STEAM professions, act quickly. Enrollment is on a first-come, first-served basis.

The M2 TechCast is produced at the Podcast Detroit studio, home of the hugely successful "IT in the D" podcast that draws upwards of 300,000 listeners a week. The owners of Podcast Detroit make the studio available to more than 30 other locally produced podcasts on topics ranging from music to sports to lifestyles.
The M2 TechCast is live on the internet at 3 p.m. Eastern time Mondays. It is available later in the week at www.soundcloud.com and other outlets, where earlier episodes are available as well.
