New Mexico State UniversityDepartment of Computer Science Science HallLas Cruces, NM
No cost to participate!
Are you ready to create, build and learn programming in a fun and friendly environment? Computer Science projects will include using Arduino boards, Robotics, CyberSecurity and Encryption, plus Modeling and Simulation!
This is not an introduction to computers camp, but a walk with programming, computational thinking, and new technologies.
This YWiC Summer Camp for girls is reserved for 30 previous YWiC participants in middle school, rising into 7th and 8th grades. Camp will include lunch, materials and supplies, an opportunity to win technology prizes, plus swag (bags, notepads, pens, etc.).
NMSU is a nationally ranked Carnegie Foundation research institution with top performing programs and services. We strive for excellence in all areas of teaching and learning, and work to identify best practices for continued success. All participants will engage in this process via pre- and post-assessments, entry and exit interviews, daily surveys, and other data gathering methods.
Summer programs are presented by the outreach team in the Department of Computer Science at NMSU! Instructors are accomplished NMSU students studying computer science and electrical engineering. We utilize near-peer mentors as educators to build strong connections between participants and the exciting world of CS.
Acceptance into this program is based on first entry and is not a competitive process. The application will remain open until all slots are filled.
We can't wait to see you!
