General Information
Description of ServiceOffering a 10-day programming workshop for high school students who will be juniors or seniors in the fall. Students must be 15 years old or older by the time of the camp. This hands-on camp introduces students to the programming skills and software/computer technologies that drive advances in science, industry, business and society. Starting with no assumed prior knowledge of programming, the camp introduces programming using the Python language and emphasizes development of algorithmic thinking and problem solving. From faculty and graduate students, participants will learn about using big-data analytics and high-performance computing to solve problems in science and engineering, and will then participate in team projects motivated by these same research challenges. By the end of the camp, students will have sufficient programming skills and awareness of the field to pursue further independent study and to inform future choices for education and careers. Ideally students will use their own laptops (Macs, PCs or Linux are acceptable; a few are available for loan) so they can continue to use the camp's open-source software programming environment and tools. Call for more detailed information.
