A five day information technology summer camp for girls, July 8th to 12th, 2019 from 9:00 AM to 4:30 PM, offered at ODU through the IT department in the Strome College of Business. The cost is $350 per camper. Boxed lunch will be provided.
We accept rising 7th, 8th, and 9th grade girls that are interested in IT. We want our campers to know there is a community in IT that will provide them encouragement and resources so they can pursue their dreams. Need-based scholarships are available.
In small teams, campers will assemble a computer, connect their computers to form a network, and build an application, all while learning a lot about programming, teamwork, and leadership. On Wednesday, they will tour a local company to learn how they use IT.
IT students at ODU serve as counselors and role models to guide the campers through the learning process. Each team will also be assigned a successful IT professional who serves as a mentor: they will eat lunch with their team on the first day to talk about the IT business, then meet again with them on the last day to talk about what their team did.
Have lunch! You'll meet your team of campers on Monday for lunch and talk about how you became successful in the IT field. Then, after the Girls have "Geeked Out" for a week, you'll meet them again for lunch Friday to see what your team has learned and accomplished, give them a big cheer, and talk about their future plans.
