Computer Science Camp

Learn about the capabilities of computers!

Prepare for a fun and challenging week that will increase your knowledge of computer science. At camp, instructors will introduce you to programming fundamentals, interface design, and web design. As you learn, you'll get to create your own website.

And at the end of the week, you’ll tour PCC’s computer hardware, software, and networking departments to get a behind-the-scenes look at how computers help run the college.

Registration is open to individuals ages 14 to 18 who have just completed or are entering grades 9–12.
