THOMASVILLE, Ga. (WALB) - Students in Thomas County are finding ways to get ahead for next school year.

At a camp this week, more than 15 Thomas County Middle School students are learning how they can use computer science in their everyday lives.

On Tuesday, they used a tool called “Makey Makey” to control a computer game.

The camp is designed to be as challenging as the user makes it, which is why students like T’Ziah Taylor continue to come back.

“Coding is my favorite because it’s challenging and I get to try something new,” Taylor said.

The school received a grant that pays for the entire camp.

School administrators said the camp will give students an advantage in their future computer science and engineering classes.
