MELBOURNE, FLA.—How does your email program identify spam and junk emails? How does Google Maps work for driving directions? These will be some of the questions answered at Florida Institute of Technology’s computer-related summer camps in July. The university’s Department of Computer Sciences offers two five-day-long summer camp experiences to high school students with no or limited knowledge in computer programming. Camp Alpha is from July 9 to 13 and Camp Beta is from July 16 to 20. Both camps will meet daily, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., in the Quad Room 114.
Camp Alpha campers will learn about programming by telling stories, making movies and playing games using the revolutionary Alice software. Students will also interact with leading professors in the department.
Camp Beta campers will learn how to solve real-life problems by designing and writing computer programs using the programming language, Java.
Each camp is limited to only 20 students. The registration fee is $150 per camp.
