Thank you so much for attending the 2020 DTC Computer Science Camps! Even with COVID-19, we wanted to offer students a way to learn computer science at home. We hope that you will continue learning computer science and that we'll keep in touch! Can't wait to hear about the new coding projects you all will be working on.
Founded by two Cherry Creek High School Computer Science students, our camp aims to foster interest in computer science for middle school students.
We teach the basics of computer science using coding languages such as Processing and Java. Projects created include games such as Tic Tac Toe, Brick, Bouncing Ball, and Maze. Speakers also come to share their experience in the computer science field and organize fun STEM related activities such as building a robotic finger simulation.
Last year's students went on to pave the way for computer science in their communities. Many are taking or signed up to take computer science courses at Cherry Creek High School. Others have founded their own programming clubs! Some have contacted us for questions about code or extra resources to use to code.
