Computer Science for All Girls: June 4-9, 2017

Since 2005, the AU Laboratory for Education and Assistive Technology (LEAT) K12 outreach program has served over 2,000 children from the Auburn community and surrounding areas. The purpose of the Computer Science for all Girls (CS4ALL-G) Camp is to foster interest in Computer Science among middle school girls (including those with special needs) by providing an engaging and active programming development experience using CS Unplugged (CSU) kinesthetic activities (http://csunplugged.org/) and Microsoft Kodu (http://www.kodugamelab.com/) to teach basic computer programming skills in a fun environment. Prior computing experience is NOT required but we are looking for participants with interest in computing.
