Build an Android App
9 a.m.–5 p.m., $750 day camp/$850 residential
Mobile devices take the term “personal computing” to the extreme. Today’s apps are increasingly mobile with more people using their devices for social networking, banking, and shopping online, etc. Do you want to make your own app? In this camp you will learn how to reuse existing code (since the Android platform is open source) to create an Android app. Android mobile devices have more market share than any other platform available. Over 3 million apps are now available in Google Play. Yours could be one of them. Some programming experience is required.
Max. number of students: 16
 
Computer Networking and Cybersecurity

Nanotechnology: The Science of Really Small Things
9 a.m.–4 p.m., $750 day camp/$850 residential
The hidden world of very small things – the nanoscale – is a magical place. At the size of atoms and molecules, materials we use every day behave very differently. The aluminum in your pop can could explode at the nanoscale. Gold is no longer yellow, it can be red, blue, or purple. If you were the size of a nanometer, a single strand of human hair would be about 80,000 times taller than you and the head of a pin a million times bigger. Find out about the weird world of nanotechnology in this interactive camp.
