Texas Camps

The following camp directory lists some of the summer camps for K-12 students in engineering throughout the United States and Canada that are and were previously offered. The directory lists camps that have been hosted by Universities and research centers in the past. Please note that all camps may not be offered every year and that new camps and programs are currently being added. Old or unsuccessful programs are always being eliminated or modified. A substantial number of programs specifically target minorities, women, and other groups traditionally underrepresented in the sciences. The programs offered change frequently, and this database is not comprehensive. This is only meant to be a guide to aid your search for engineering education preparation tools. Many of the programs offer scholarships and may have application deadlines as early as January. If you are interested in a program, please email, call or write the organization listed for an application and the most current information available.

University of Texas at Austin Pre-College Program (3 weeks)
Programming & Robotics Grades 9-12
Get a jump on Python, the most popular general language in top Computer Science departments and one of the most in-demand programming languages. Used at Google and NASA. 
Code and debug code. Learn electrical, mechanical, and programming principles and algorithmic thinking. Apply automation/artificial intelligence strategies to get your bot competing in sumo-wrestling matches and soccer games. This course focuses on creative problem solving and critical thinking.
Students will all participate in electrical, mechanical, and programming aspects. Taught by experienced software developer. No prior programming experience needed. Python, named after Monty Python, is similar to English. Allows non-coders to start quickly but versatile and scalable to test Intel microchips, power Instagram, build video games, or run big data.

Music Apps: Interested in music, web design, or interactivity? Learn the latest mobile and web development. JavaScript is the 3rd most in-demand programming language and the scripting language of web browsers. Develop your own music app. Apply fundamental language constructs (objects, functions, events) to digital audio techniques (synthesis, sampling, effects). Taught by experienced developer and start-up entrepreneur. Suitable for beginning to advanced students. Some programming experience is helpful but not required. This is a three-week day or overnight program (6/25-7/15/2016).
