Adventures in Computer Science Summer Camp

Join us on our adventure as we explore and learn all about Computer Science using an age-appropriate, forensic-themed scenario. Campers will use computer science tools and become investigators working toward solving a crime while in this immersion-based camp! The 2013 Camp is open to students who are entering grades 6, 7, or 8 by the Fall of 2013. No previous computer science or programming expertise is necessary, but campers should be comfortable using a computer. The camp will take an in-depth look at computer science concepts such as programming, cryptography, and robotics, and how they are used every day to make a difference in our world. Using programs such as Python, Alice, and Web design software, students will explore hands-on applications. Students will also participate in a PicoCricket design studio challenge. Activities will be led by the Purdue University computer science K-12 outreach coordinator, other computer science faculty and staff, and K-12 teachers.
