The application is open! Apply today!
Join this fun and elite computer science camp, and become a creator of new technologies and programming! Everyone will receive an Intel Arduino/Galileo microprocessor board. The Intel Galileo development board is a great tool for quickly prototyping simple interactive designs like LED light displays that respond to social media, or for tackling more complex projects from automating home appliances to building life-size robots that you control from your smartphone. Participants will also explore Cybersecurity, Encryption, smartgrid technologies, and learn Java and C.
This camp provides a broad foundation for computer science, to empower our area high school students in CS and computational thinking.
Acceptance into this program will be based on answers provided on the application, the availability of the student applicant to participate in the full two weeks of the program, plus targeted regional, gender, and age distributions. Camp will include lunch, materials and supplies, an opportunity to win technology prizes, plus swag (bag, t-shirt, notepad, pen, water bottle, etc.).
The iCREDITS and GK12 summer camps over the past 3 years have been incredible!
The 2017 camp hosted 29 high school students from southern NM and far west Texas. Participants learned C-based programming, integrated with an Arduino microprocessor, to control a personally selected Parallax BOEbot build; Python coding entwined with a Raspberry Pi and up to 6 different sensors, plus Encryption and Cybersecurity.
In 2016, 30 campers from regional high schools created the following projects: Binary Translator Game, a Remote Control, an Analog Thermometer, LCD Screens – wiring and coding, Decoding Signals with a vehicle’s MP3 Remote, a PIN Verification system; learning the Raspberry Pi microcomputer processor using Python programming; and Ozobot Robotics.
In 2015, the camp hosted 30 high school students from throughout southern New Mexico, who built outstanding projects, utilizing Parallax Boebots with PBASIC programming, Solar Tracker with Arduino using C programming, a Solar Powered Car integrating solar panels and Arduino microprocessors, and AppInventor.
