IIT COMPUTER DISCOVERY CAMP
The Illinois Tech Computer Discovery Camp is a
two-week camp (Monday-Thursday, 9 a.m.-2 p.m.) that engages students in hands-on activities to help develop spatial visualization and problem-solving skills. The purpose of the camp is to stimulate interest in
computers and to lay a foundation for careers in computer science (CS) and
related disciplines. Each summer camp offers a different curriculum so students can continue to participate every summer.
This summer, the camp will be themed “Go Green!.” The campers will build a Lego Mindstorm (EV3) robot and program it
to solve an environmental issue. The students will also be introduced to
working with a database. Participants with prior experience will be
grouped accordingly. This summer we are again offering 2 sessions; both
sessions will offer the same curriculum.
