ICYMI in CNY: New way to board planes, an invitation from nudists, and STEM camp for girls

JetBlue is testing a new way to board planes (MGNOnline)

In case you missed it, here are some stories from all over that are of interest here in Central New York.

JetBlue is on the cutting edge of a new system of boarding planes. It sounds futuristic, but it's happening now. Instead of a boarding pass and photo ID, you could be placing two fingers on a scanner to be recognized. The airline is testing facial recognition and biometric check-in for some flights. Delta is expected to start a similar program soon.

A long-established nudist camp in Moravia is trying something new. Next Saturday, it's offering first-time women a chance to try baring it all, with other women there to walk them through it. It's scheduled for 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. next Saturday. A full day of activities is planned.

If you're looking for something for your teen girls to do, there's a STEM summer camp coming up. It's for 9th to 12th graders, aimed at getting young women interested in science, technology, engineering and math. The camp is at LeMoyne college next week, July 24-28. More details are on the website.
