3) Gain knowledge and exposure to introductory programming; &
4) Drastically increase all students’ confidence in Computer Science.

Each goal is achieved through specific sets of activities implemented in the summer camp. Participants are exposed to computational thinking through a variety of interactive software tools. These tools, along with team building, career exploration, and leadership activities, show students that computer science can be a fun, creative, engaging, and rewarding field!
