2015 Alabama Summer Computer Camps

The University of Alabama Department of Computer Science within the College of Engineering will host a series of Computer Science camps from July 20th-31st, 2015. A week-long middle school camp is available for commuting campers (cancelled for 2015) and two weeks of camps (commuter or residential dorm) are available for high school students. Students will be taught multiple topics of Computer Science while learning to program a computer in several exciting contexts (e.g., game programming and robotics at the middle school camps; and Java, robotics control and smartphone apps at the high school camps). The Computer Science camps are taught in a manner that encourages self-exploration across multiple projects.

First-round invitations will be sent out by May 4, 2015, and continuing untill all available seats are full. The application form is available here.
