2016 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 in Summer 2016. The specific dates have not yet been determined. A week-long middle school camp is available for commuting campers 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.

To express interest in the camp, please fill out the following form: 2016 Summer Camp Interest. We will contact you in February when application details are made known.
