Department of Computer Science at Maynooth University runs the Computer Science Summer Camp for students aged 13-18 years old in June/July every year. It was created to allow students to explore Computer Science concepts and to try out new technology whilst having fun and making friends. It is a great chance for anyone who is thinking of studying Computer Science to try it out in a way that is both educational and entertaining. It is also a great opportunity for anyone wanting to try out something new.
We have two Summer Camps available, a Beginners Summer Camp and an Advanced Summer Camp. Students can book in for one of the camps for one, two or three weeks, with different activities happening each week. The camp runs from 9.30am to 1pm Monday to Friday.
The Beginners Summer Camp assumes no prior experience and will involve activities both on and off the computer that will allow the students to explore a broad range of areas of Computer Science, including making a website, controlling a robot, creating a computer game and loads more.
The Advanced Summer Camp is for students who have tried Computer Science before and is run with the Department of Electronic Engineering. Rather than short introductory sessions, the student will spend more time on advanced topics.
