Game Makers, Game Changers

Computer Science and Engineering Camp for Girls

The Game Makers, Game Changers: Computer Science and Engineering Camp set for June 21-25, 2021 will be held virtually.

Want to explore how one person — like you! — can change the world?

Discover how computer science makes that possible! In this camp, you’ll use games such as Minecraft to learn computer science and engineering basics. You’ll teach a computer how to play games such as Quarto using your words, and you’ll discover the different ways that machines can learn.

This summer camp, open to all seventh through ninth graders regardless of gender, is geared toward encouraging middle-school girls to explore how they can become a designer of new technology using ideas rooted in computer science and engineering. Participants will interact directly with world-renowned women computer scientists at different stages of their careers; witness how research is performed at top universities and high-tech companies; experience first-hand how to build and program virtual worlds and automatic devices; and see how they can drive the future through creativity and imagination.

WHO: Open to anyone entering 7th to 9th grades

WHEN: 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. from June 21-25, 2021 
WHERE: Virtual zia Zoom
COST: $125
