The Department of Computer Science (DCS) at Notre Dame University-Louaize North Lebanon Campus (NDU-NLC) organized a “Computer Science Summer Camp” between June 25 and June 29, 2018, in the NLC Computer Laboratories. Nearly 40 students representing 10 schools in North Lebanon participated in the event.
In parallel, two different workshops were delivered over two days between 9:00 a.m. and 1:30 p.m.:
- Ali Hammoud delivered a Python workshop, which focused on creating
artistic painting tools using Python. Students learned how to simulate
probability and basic life with normal distribution. Recursion and
fractals were also covered; and
- Miriam Badran delivered a workshop in Unity game programming. Students
created several computer games starting with the design process. They
learned how to create a user interface and wrote C# scripts. They
utilized game objects and their components, and 3D models to create
their designs. They also witnessed how Mathematics and Physics could be
used to simulate real world laws.
At the end of the event, participants’ parents joined in the celebratory distribution of attendance certificates, which NLC Director Fr. François Akl led. Parents, students, and organizers were all thrilled with the results of the summer camp.
The feedback received regarding the event was positive. One student, echoing the feelings of all participants, said, “It was a fantastic experience for me. Thank you NDU!”
