Students attending the Stonecutter Foundation Computer Science Camp will investigate the fascinating world of computer science.
Camp is designed for students in grades 7–12. We will start from the beginning, learning the basics of computer science, and then delving into the specifics of artificial intelligence, cloud computing, social networking, mobile networking, and big data. The Camp will also cover basic programming using Alice, an innovative 3D programming environment used to create animation, play interactive games, and produce videos to be shared on the Web. No computer science experience is required to attend this Camp. The cost covers all materials, a t-shirt, lunch each day, and field trips.
July 25-29, 2022
Tentative Daily Schedule:
- 9–10 a.m. – Investigating an area of computer science (like AI, cloud computing, or big data)
