They will learn how to create a camera that takes "old-school" photos. The July 15-19 session is for ages 11-15. The July 22-26 session is for ages 7-10. The cost per session is $160, or $140 for members. Visit fmopa.org/class-listings to register online. For information, call (813) 221-2222.

Middle school summer program: Jesuit High School continues its Summer Bridge program with 40 middle school boys this year. Boys entering grades 6 through 8 who are at or above grade level, most from Hillsborough County public schools, have been participating in the program since last month. The students study math, grammar, reading and critical thinking taught by teachers, Jesuit alumni and Jesuit students each morning. They participate in electives like sports, cooking, art, music, robotics and videography in the afternoon. This is the program's third summer. Jesuit recruits students for the program by contacting middle school principals, guidance counselors and gifted teachers.

Student award: Francesca Giorgianni, a recent eighth-grade graduate of St. Lawrence Catholic School, was awarded the Monsignor Laurence Higgins Award for Excellence. She has volunteered with Feeding American, Everyday Blessings, Pinellas Hope and the St. Lawrence Catholic Church Vacation Bible School. She is also a member of the National Junior Honor Society and the school's forensic team. She was accepted to the IB program at Hillsborough High School. The award is given to students who use their time in service to others while maintaining high academic standards.
