About the Camp

Cyber security is one of the most important topics of computer science. From personal malware attacks to large-scale hacks, cyber security is at the center of ensuring computer systems are safe and secure for all. In this camp, students will develop in-demand programming skills in Linux while learning about key areas of cyber security, such as web security. By the end of the camp, they will be able to detect concealed messages within computer files, prevent network attacks, and intercept traffic data to prevent password collection.


What Students Learn

Students will learn about key areas of cyber security, including hashing, network security, and cyber attacks and defenses - all while building out real-world cyber programming skills.

Through the camp, students will work on projects to:
- Manipulate text files using Linux commands
- Capture raw packets to gather statistical information on the network traffic
- Assess a website’s vulnerability by formulating SQL injections
- Employ steganography tactics to analyze suspicious images

About the Camp

Want to train computers to do things without explicitly telling them to do so? Learn the technology that self-driving cars are based on? Understand how Netflix chooses which movies to recommend to you? This camp is for you!
In this camp, students delve into the exciting field of machine learning (ML), a subfield of AI. Through hands-on learning, they work on projects, such as image classification (where they’ll train an ML algorithm to identify different types of animals), all while developing programming skills in Python.


What Students Learn

Students develop foundational knowledge in machine learning. Through project-based learning, students learn how to utilize large datasets, program ML algorithms, and recent state-of-the-art AI advancements in Deep Learning.

Through the camp, students will:
- Develop real-world skills in scikit-learn - the most popular and useful tool for machine learning
- Learn to use the programming language, Python, for machine learning
- Train machine learning algorithms, such as decision trees and bayesian networks
- Mitigate bias in machine learning outcomes

Our signature virtual summer camp!


About the Camp

This is a jam packed two-week camp, in which students will be introduced to the breadth and depth of computer science. Students will learn the fundamentals of coding plus develop knowledge and coding skills in cutting-edge tech fields, such as AI and Healthcare+Tech. Each day is filled with hands-on activities and project building, allowing students to gain real skills and work together in a collaborative environment.


What Students Learn

The purpose of the Tech Taster is for students to develop foundational coding skills and gain exposure to various fields of computer science. In the first week, students focus on learning the fundamentals of coding in the programming language, Python - one of the most widely used programming languages. They will learn concepts fundamental to all programming languages, including variables, conditionals, booleans, loops, functions, and more.

In Week Two, students apply the coding skills they learned in Week 1 in a variety of cutting-edge tech fields. Each day, they learn about a different field and work on hands-on activities and projects in the given field. On the final day of the camp, they choose the field that most interests them and work on an in-depth programming project.

The fields they will be exposed to each day are:

About the Camp

Learning how to code can be hard, but with the right support, it doesn’t have to be! This two-week course introduces students to the most important programming concepts that are found in AP Computer Science and introductory college-level courses so students get a headstart on their courses in a supportive, failure-free environment.

This camp is intended for:
- High school students who are thinking about or planning on taking a high school level computer science course or an AP Computer Science course
- Entering college freshmen who want to be prepared for college-level computer science courses


What Students Learn

This is an introductory course on the programming language, Java. Foundational coding concepts - universal to all programming languages - will be covered, including: variables, input/output, conditionals, loops, methods, and data structures, including lists and arrays (covering the equivalent to many introductory college-level courses).

Through the camp, students will work on labs and projects, such as:
- Program a two-player Rock, Paper, Scissors game
- Develop a virtual bank where users can withdraw and deposit money
- Create a phone number generator
- Generate a password validator to check if passwords adhere to a set of rules or not
