CS ADVENTURES! Summer Camp

CS Adv TSh v4

CS Adventures 2018 will be held in June, Monday – Friday, in Science Hall on the NMSU campus. The application will open in early March.

The camp will host up to 30 high school students (rising 9th – 12th grades), striving for gender parity, and includes lunch, materials and supplies, plus swag (bags, notepads, pens, 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.
