Overview

At the Summer Computer Science Institute, students will learn how to systematically approach problems like a computer scientist as they engage in classroom learning, hands-on lab activities, and collaborative guided research directed by faculty and mentored by undergraduate research assistants. 

Computer Science is about more than computers: it is the systematic study of processes for solving problems. The Carleton College Summer Computer Science Institute (SCSI) focuses on understanding how to think about these processes, how to program computers to implement them, and how to apply computer science ideas to real problems of interest.

During a 3 week program, SCSI students, faculty, and Carleton undergraduate research assistants will engage in lab-based and classroom-based computing research related to faculty and student interests. Each participant will self-select into a research group consisting of 12 students. The students will take courses and conduct collaborative guided research in small groups guided by SCSI faculty members and Carleton College undergraduate Research Assistants. Students will complete a collaborative guided project which will culminate in a demonstration at the SCSI Research Symposium held at the end of the program.
