为什么编程?

这里是一个15分钟的视频来解释这张图: 学习计划:愉快的旅程?

Latest surveys and news reports indicate that the US will continue to see a serious shortage of software professionals for the foreseeable future. So, computer programming is expected to be a high-paying & marketable skill for years to come. Even if you decide to pursue a career in another field, it is very likely that you will use a computer on the job! Basic programming skills can enable you to be more efficient in your job & try something new!! Almost every one can learn to program if they are willing to think and try. Yet, we see significant % of middle & high school students making career choices, without knowing the meaning of the term “computer programming!” Ok, how can you assess your interest level? How to check whether you have the mindset to enjoy programming? There is one simple way to find out – Jump in there, write a few programs and see f要么 yourself!

We are passionate about programming & problem solving techniques! We strongly believe that it is possible to introduce Computer Programming to all school students in an enjoyable way and enable them to consider higher education & career in STEM fields. There are several age-appropriate FREE tools out there that can help to learn programming at almost any age! We believe, with wonderful tools like Logo and Scratch, a typical 3rd grader should be able to start the journey!

我们的车间

We have been conducting several workshops in various programming languages (Alice, JavaScript, Java, C++, and Python) in various school breaks from 2012. Additionally, we conduct programming competitions every semester and several summer camps too. While our workshops & camps have been primarily geared towards middle & high school students, we expanded our workshops to cover everyone (Kindergarten to working professionals) in 2013! Here is the suggested sequence f要么 all.

为什么我们运行这些事件?

  • 我们希望学校的学生,教师和社区认识到,学习编程可以是愉快的!希望大家多多学校的学生将成为关于编程的热情,选择干的大学学位和职业领域。因为学校的学生开始对特定职业所吸引,早在中学,我们希望他们早日接触到计算机编程,使他们能够做出“知情”的选择。
  • We want to strengthen the programming skills of UTD students so that they can excel in their programming projects in their coursew要么k and beyond. We also want to help them become industry-ready & enable them to get internships during school years and better jobs when they graduate.
  • 我们要工作的专业人员使用我们的产品作为一种资源来更新他们的技能,使他们能够更有效地做他们的工作,并在他们的事业进步。

夏令营

夏令营主要是针对对学校的学生,即使每一个包括大学生,学校老师和家长的欢迎注册并参加!一整个星期每个夏令营运行 - 我们已经加入上午/下午营小学的孩子。这些营地将让参加者2个阵营在一个星期内结合(与国际象棋/运动/机器人编程营营) - UTD确实提供了大量的阵营夏天在访问 www.effedodici.com/summercamps 看到完整的阵容!

Each camp will be jointly run by well-trained & experienced UTD students with guidance from UTD faculty. Enrollment cap for each camp has been set to 20 participants to enable all the participants to interact with the instruct要么s.

可以预期的难度,从一个营地到另一个有很大的差异。您的注册前仔细检查阵营描述。如果你不能确定,请发送电子邮件至 [电子邮件保护] 得到澄清。请不要通过先进的阵营急于学校的学生 - 我们不想让他们不堪重负,并在编程宽松的兴趣。我们希望他们能够享受学习的过程和自己的步伐前进。

Advance registration fee for each full-week camp is reasonable $300 until 2 weeks before the camp & it increases to $350 for the final week of registration (Advance registration fee for one week mornings/ afternoons camp will be $150 and it increases to $200 during the final 2 weeks). If we run out of space in any camp/location, we may close the registration early f要么 specific camps/locations.

All the participants will get a Camp T-shirt on Monday, a completion certificate on Friday if they attended all 5 days and completed all the exercises. We plan to cater lunch for all full day campers (Pizza/Sandwiches/Indian/Chinese/Italian food entries). Unless stated otherwise, all workshops run for whole day (9 am to 4 pm). At least 2 different items from Pizza, Subway sandwich, Italian, Chinese and Indian entries will be served. A vegetarian option is always included.

发布形式

发布形式,可以下载和上传@ bit.ly/utd-cc-f要么ms. If you are bit worried about the open nature of UTD buildings/classrooms/labs (unlike a typical day-care with the locked doors), you are welcome to stay with your child for the first day or two. Alternatively, friends/families/communities can plan & register several kids together, then the parents can take turns to bring the kids to the camps & stay with them. Guest WiFi is available f要么 adults to access the web while on campus. Let us know if you have any questions.
