CS-Design Camp 2020 at Winona State University
Taking place over five days,
Sunday, July 12 to Friday, July 17, 2020
@ Winona State University
The Computer Science-Design Summer Camp provides an exclusive opportunity for high school students to enhance their computer technical knowledge while being exposed to the excitement and fun of living and studying at the college level. Campers will gain critical knowledge in true application development and will explore many of the “Big Ideas” of computing with real-world college readiness in mind. All camp participants live on campus during the week – eating delicious dining hall meals and living in residence halls – while learning how to prepare for college and career success. There are evening enrichment experiences and lots of time to make new friends and enjoy the beautiful outdoor spaces. Focus is on college preparedness and using technology to solve real problems.
During the day, campers will work on a variety of computer problems – both individually and in teams – that involve creating advanced 3D objects, connecting computing devices to control other mechanical and digital machines, and controlling robots.
New for 2020! Campers will learn how to program their own virtual reality games, in addition to playing them!
Campers are housed in an air-conditioned, suite style residence hall on Winona State University’s main campus. Breakfast, lunch, and dinner are provided in the campus dining hall. CS and Design learning experiences occur during the day, taught by college professors and computer science college students. Enrichment activities take place during the evening, led by college camp counselors.
