This co-ed, overnight summer camp offers computing experiences for both basic and advanced students. Students learn at their own pace, each at their own computer station. Both creative and practical programming will be covered, but the emphasis is on having fun.
Classes are taught by college professors and graduate students with experience in all realms of computer engineering. Students will experience “hands-on” learning in small classes, through regular practice, seminars and demonstrations. They can choose to learn on their own, or work in a group. When they register, students can select the areas of computing they wish to study. Instruction topics include the following:
- Video game design
- Computer languages
- Web page design
- Software applications
- Simple robotics
- Network systems
Students will learn an advanced language such as C++ or Java and can experiment with new graphics languages. Each will program different applications that they will then be able to take home.
Students can learn advanced programming skills to program robots, sensors and security systems and basic networking!
Web page design will include instruction in HTML - the standard used to program web pages - as well as DHTML. Students will also learn to use software to create graphics. Each student will leave camp having designed his/her own web page that includes text and graphics.
When not in class, students enjoy planned activities on campus as well as free time for relaxation. Living, dining and learning together, students have ample opportunity to get to know each other well and develop lasting friendships.
