Computer Discovery Camp

The Illinois Tech Computer Discovery Camp is a two-week or three-week camp (Monday-Thursday, 9 a.m.-2 p.m.) that engages pre-collegiate 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 “Dancing Queen”. The campers will build a Lego Mindstorm (EV3) robot and program it to “dance”. The students will also learn to create e-textiles to “customize” their robots and make personal wearable e-textiles.  Participants with prior experience will be grouped accordingly.
