Computer Science Summer Programs Overview
Computer Science is an exciting and fast-growing field of study! The Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that over 500,000 new jobs will be created over the next 10 years in areas related to computer science and lead to high paying jobs for students considering this field. Additionally, top universities across the country, such as Georgia Tech, offer undergraduate degrees and certificate-based programs to give students a variety of options to choose from when they graduate high school. However, you do not have to wait until you graduate high school to start honing your computer science skills and see if it is the right fit for you! Here at CEISMC, we have developed a wide variety of summer programs to put you in the driver seat of your future career opportunities. Even if you are not thinking about your future career right now, computer science is a fun opportunity to learn everything from how to make your own weather station, to building your own apps and games, and even just adding interactivity to your next school project. It truly is for everyone!
During our summer computer science programs, participants will be exposed to the following areas:
- block and text-based coding
- app development
- game development
To encourage more students to explore computer science, and to recognize their hard work, the Center for Education Integrating Science Mathmatics and Computing (CEISMC) has created a certificate to recognize any student who attends two or more qualifying programs within the same summer. These programs are offered virtually, on-campus in Atlanta, and on-campus in Savannah. Review the list of available programs below and get registered today!
- student must attend a minimum of two programs listed below
- attendance only counts for summer 2021 and cannot be combined with past program participation
- student must attend the whole program and complete all projects/activities
- must be a rising 6th - 12th grader as of summer 2021
