The Department of Computer Science (DCS) at Notre Dame University-Louaize (NDU) organized between July 16 and 20, 2018, its hugely successful second annual “Computer Science Summer Camp,” which was sponsored by BMB, Labyse, and Data Quest.
Attracting more than 100 students from 35 different schools, the five-day intensive, interactive, hands-on, and fun program introduced computer science to high school students, demonstrating a passion for technology. Through four different workshops that were constructed to help students accelerate their progress in the field and develop cross-disciplinary knowledge, participants learned various programming and software packages, such as Computer Animation, Python Programming, Computer Game Programming (Unity), and Android Mobile Programming, and as a result were able to create some impressive projects.
The summer camp was aimed at inspiring the tech leaders and innovators of tomorrow by supporting the study of computer science, software engineering, and other closely related subjects. Also, students were given the opportunity to learn more about what to expect from their future career and encouraged to pursue their studies toward a technical degree as well as to develop their technical skills, build confidence in their abilities, and become better prepared to study computer science or closely related fields.
