2017 Alabama Computer Science Summer Camp

The University of Alabama Department of Computer Science within the College of Engineering has hosted a series of Computer Science camps each summer. For Summer 2017, we will offer one week of camps (commuter or residential dorm) for high school students (rising 10th through 12th graders). Students will be taught multiple topics of Computer Science while learning to program a computer in several exciting contexts using the Java programming language. The Computer Science camps are taught by UA Computer Science faculty in a manner that encourages self-exploration across multiple projects.

To apply for the 2017 camp, please click here. We will send out first-round invitations on April 21, and then continue to accept applications until the camp is full.
