YWiC Summer Camp for Young Women in High School

June 4 – 15, 2018, 1:00 – 4:30 pm, Monday – Friday, for 30 young women rising into 9th – 12th grades, who are new to YWiC summer intensives. No cost to participate!

Join us to explore computer science through fun builds and learning to code! Computing skills could get you the job of your dreams someday, so join us this summer and celebrate your innate abilities for understanding how to help your neighbors, solve community issues, and discover your talents for integrating technologies.

This is not an introduction to computers camp, but a walk with programming, computational thinking, and new technologies. Young women will build a project using LilyPad Arduino microprocessors, learn Java, explore Cybersecurity and Encryption, build and program robots, and master drag-n-drop programming through game design. Camp will include lunch, materials and supplies, an opportunity to win technology prizes, plus swag (bag, t-shirt, notepad, pen, water bottle, etc.).

YWiC Alum Camp for High School

June 4 – 8, June 11 – 15, June 18 – 22, 10:00 am – 1:30 pm, Monday – Friday. Attend one, two, or all three weeks. No cost to participate!

Have an idea for a build? Want to create a personal masterpiece? Let’s do it!

If you have previously participated in a YWiC summer intensive, we want you to explore your imagination and challenge yourself on a self-guided tour! You will have access to available materials, computers, building components, robotic kits, instructors, classrooms, labs, and camp instructors. Our team will walk with you as you take the lead and turn your ideas into completed projects!

This intensive is open to 30 HS young women rising into 10th – 12th grades that have previously participated in a YWiC high school summer program, and want to earn a weekly stipend as you create something new! Spend one, two, or three weeks with us in June, and dive into CS on your own terms. Camp will include a stipend, lunch, materials and supplies, an opportunity to win technology prizes, plus swag (bag, t-shirt, notepad, pen, water bottle, etc.).

CS Adventures Camp

June 18 – 29, 2018, 1:00 – 4:30 pm, Monday – Friday, for 30 high school students rising into 9th – 12th grades. No cost to participate!

Join this fun and elite computer science camp, and become a creator of new technologies and programming! Everyone will receive an Intel Arduino/Galileo microprocessor board. The Intel Galileo development board is a great tool for quickly prototyping simple interactive designs like LED light displays that respond to social media, or for tackling more complex projects from automating home appliances to building life-size robots that you control from your smartphone. Participants will also explore Cybersecurity, Encryption, smartgrid technologies, and learn Java and C.

This camp provides a broad foundation for computer science, to empower our area high school students in CS and computational thinking.

Acceptance into this program will be based on answers provided on the application, the availability of the student applicant to participate in the full two weeks of the program, plus targeted regional, gender, and age distributions. Camp will include lunch, materials and supplies, an opportunity to win technology prizes, plus swag (bag, t-shirt, notepad, pen, water bottle, etc.).
