This is a five-day online (Camp 1: July 5-9, 2021, Camp 2: July 12-15,2021 ) with lectures and hands-on experiments in addition to professional development and career building activities.  

The camp is designed for high school students (grades 9-12) with a strong interest in computer science. The participants are only expected to have basic computer literacy without an expectation of programming or cyber security knowledge. However, prior computer science experience is always a plus for better learning outcomes.  Want more info?
