Camp Alpha is full and no longer accepting students.

Interested in learning how to program in high demand languages like Java, C++, and C#? Would you rather learn by making movies and video games? Are you tired of rhetorical questions with obvious answers?

In this camp, students get to learn about programming by telling stories, making movies and even games using the revolutionary Alice software. Not only will programming become fun, but students will also learn alongside some of the department's top professors, making this one of the coolest programs you can be a part of this summer!

To learn more about Alice, visit the Alice Homepage.


Camp Beta: Problem Solving With Computing

How does Google Maps give you driving directions? How does Netflix recommend movies for you to rent? How does your email program identify spam/junk email? In this camp you will learn how to solve real-life problems with designing and writing computer programs in Java. Prior experience in the Java programming language is not assumed.
