STEM Ed Announcement: Computer Science for HS Girls



This is not a UMass program
 Contact information is below.
 ==================================
 
 Boston University is pleased to announce that it will host the 3rd
 annual Artemis Project@BU.  Artemis is a five-week computer science
 summer program for 8th grade girls who will be entering 9th grade in
 September 2013. Artemis introduces participants to the creative
 thinking and problem-solving skills that are at the core of computer
 science.
 
 
 Artemis sparks the interest of girls by making fundamental topics in
 computer science fun and engaging, incorporating lessons with
 hands-on activities as well as real-world applications. Artemis
 teaches girls how to design their own websites in HTML/CSS, build and
 program robotics, and create games using programming languages such
 as Java, Python, Scheme and Visual Basics. Sample conceptual topics
 included introduction to search and sort algorithms, cryptography,
 artificial intelligence, circuits, and recursion through Towers of
 Hanoi. In addition, students go on weekly field trips and hear from a
 variety of guest speakers. We hope that students will leave Artemis
 with both the practical skills and the conceptual background that
 will help them succeed.
 
 
 The program will be held in Boston University's Photonics Center from
 July 1 through August 2nd, 2013 M-F from 9:00-3:00.  The program is
 free of charge, but once accepted, participants are required to a
 $100 registration free. Please note, this is a day program and
 neither transportation nor accommodations available. For more
