Last week UW CSE concluded this year’s summer programs for middle and high school students. Under the DawgBytes (“a taste of UW CSE” – our overall K-12 outreach effort) umbrella, we introduced more than 160 kids from across the state to computer science, which they now associate with fun, creativity and making friends!
This summer we hosted 4 week-long introductory day camps for girls, 3 co-ed day camps on mobile development, and 1 co-ed day camp on physical computing.
Infinite thanks to Hélène Martin (whose passion and dedication makes all of this happen), Allison Obourn (who taught the mobile development camps), Brett Wortzman (a teacher at Issaquah High School who taught the physical computing camp), our camp counselors (Stefan Dieraf from UW, Megan Fu from Holy Names, Claire Illich from Holy Names -> Northeastern, Genevieve Payzer from Lakeside, and Karolina Pyszkiewicz from Holy Names -> UW), Jeremy Munroe (our DawgBytes assistant), Google (for the donation of Android phones), Microsoft Research (for the donation of .NET Gadgeteer kits), and CSE’s wonderful support staff.
