This summer pre-college program for high school students 15 and older offers a highly visual, non-mathematical introduction to computer programming and animation. The vehicle is the Alice development environment, which allows students without prior experience to rapidly create 3D virtual worlds like those seen in animations and video games.
All programs and courses are college-level and led by Syracuse University faculty and instructors. Noncredit and college credit-bearing 2-week programs run from June 30 through August 10. Field trips and activities on campus give students the opportunity to relax, have fun, and make new friends.
Residential students stay in a residence hall and eat in a dining hall. Students also have access to all of Syracuse University’s facilities, which include the library, recreation centers, and student centers. Room and board are included in the overnight summer program costs.
