It’s summer and camp at Georgia Tech’s College of Computing is in full swing.

This year, nearly 500 elementary, middle school, and high school students are registered in the College’s summer camp program. The weeklong day camps scheduled this summer include:

  • Web design
  • Robotics
  • Minecraft
  • Computer game design
  • Mobile applications
  • Stop-motion movies
  • Creating music through code

New this summer, high school students can take Java programming. Students will learn programming concepts using the Java language and work to establish skills and facility that can be applied to the AP Computer Science (CS) A exam.

“Our high school camps have been very popular this year, with each camp at its maximum number of 24 campers,” said Annette Clifford, academic program coordinator.

A camp focused on programming games with Unity is also being offered to high schoolers this summer. Unity is one of the industry standard development environments for 3D game design.

The GT Computing summer camps are coordinated each year by the College’s Office of Outreach, Enrollment and Community (OEC).

“The mission of the GT Computing summer camps is to share the creative side of computing with our campers,” said Cedric Stallworth, assistant dean for OEC. “We don’t necessarily want them all to be computer scientists. Our goal is to stir their curiosity and give them a glimpse of all of the endless creative possibilities that computing holds for them.”

Although most of the GT Computing summer camp sessions are wait-list only at this time, some are still accepting campers.
