Adventures in Computer Science Camp set June 19-24
WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - The 2011 Adventures in Computer Science Summer Camp for students entering grades 6-8 is scheduled for June 19-24 at Purdue University.
Sponsored by the K-12 Outreach Program of Purdue's Department of Computer Science, the camp will take an in-depth look at computer science concepts such as programming and robotics and how they are used every day to make a difference in our world. No previous computer science or programming expertise is necessary, but campers should be comfortable using a computer.
Computer activities will take place in the Lawson Computer Science Building. These activities will be led by Mindy Hart, Purdue computer science K-12 outreach coordinator, other computer science faculty and staff, and K-12 teachers. Purdue students will work with campers as lab assistants and camp counselors, and 24-hour supervision will be provided by camp staff.
Camp will conclude with a recognition luncheon and project show-and-tell that family may attend for an additional cost.
