'Emerging Sectors' maps new type of summer camp

What will your kids tell classmates they did this summer? Attend soccer camp? Swim at the pool? Study nanotechnology? Instructors at Oakland Schools hope the response will be the latter as the school system is modeling much of its summer enrichment programs after the county's Emerging Sectors initiative.

Among the most interesting classes is a course designed by Michigan State University associate professor Dean Aslam, which introduces kindergarten through high school students to micro- and nanotechnology.
