This program is designed to serve high school juniors and seniors interested in pursuing science and engineering majors in college, but who have never had the opportunity to code before, or who are new to programming. In 3 intensive 2-day bootcamp sessions, we will introduce students to the programming languages and skills they will need if they will be applying for science and engineering internships during high school, and will also help them to present the best possible CS skill-set to their college application boards.
Upon completion of the program, students will have created robust coding projects they can post to a Github account and will have established a digital footprint they can keep enhancing and expanding upon throughout their college admissions process.
