Computer Engineering Camp students

Computer Camps

Monday, July 12 - Friday, July 16, 2021

Designed for beginners, the Computer Engineering 1 Camp will provide fascinating insight into how consumer electronics, automobiles and robots are made. Plus, students will have a chance to design, build, and program a robot. They’ll do this by learning important technical skills, such as how to wire sensors to the processor and implement programs to make their robot intelligent. They’ll even learn how to write Android apps for remotely controlling their robot. At the end of the camp, students will receive a microcontroller kit to keep.

Grades: 9-12

Monday, July 19 - Friday, July 23, 2021

Designed for students with at least intermediate programming or robotics experience, this camp will provide an interactive deep-dive into the field of computer engineering. Students will learn how to configure and program a single-board computer and communicate with various electronic devices, such as a webcam, motor, and robotic sensors. Students will also be challenged to build and program a small-scale autonomous vehicle that is controlled by a single-board computer and additional sensors.

Note: CE Camp 1 is not required for this camp but is recommended as it will provide helpful context for CE Camp 2.

Monday, July 26 - Friday, July 30, 2021

Gain the skills needed to help solve one of the world’s greatest challenges-cybersecurity. During this camp, students will participate in hands-on team exercises where they learn about encryption, email phishing, and vehicle security. Students will also be exposed to a real cyberattack scenario, hear exciting stories from cybersecurity experts, and learn about career options in the cybersecurity field. Note: Prior knowledge of cybersecurity is not required; however, a background in math, science, and computing will be useful.

Cost is dependent on whether it is a day or residential camp.

Wednesday, July 7 - Thursday, July 15, 2021 

Noon - 4 p.m.

Pop quiz: what do Google, NASA and the CIA all have in common? They all use Python! This programming language is surging in popularity and all programmers will benefit from adding it to their arsenal. The Python Coding Camp gives students the ability to do just that through a series of hands-on programming activities that give them a real feel for coding. This is a great opportunity for students to launch their academic and career readiness in Computer Science.
