Engineering & Computer Science Camp is for students that will have graduated from 9th grade by summer 2019 and are interested in learning more about subjects related to Computer Science and Engineering. In this five-week camp, students explore concepts related to real-world engineering, computational thinking, computer programming in Scratch and object-oriented languages like Python, and technology development. Throughout the camp students also interact with industry professionals and UT researchers. This camp is NOT for high school credit.
How are the children chosen? Students need to submit grades for the 2018-2019 school year through the 2nd 6th-weeks (additional weeks may be requested), and an application (see below) to apply for the program. Students should have some basic coding experience.
Each camper receives individual attention from a Master Teacher and several UT student interns. Throughout their time here at UT, campers will eat lunch in common areas alongside UT students, explore different places on campus, swim in the pool, and play sports in the gym.
