Native American student computer camp (High School Juniors and Seniors)
The Coalition for American Indians in Computing is recruiting incoming 11th
and 12th grade SELF-IDENTIFIED Native American students for a computer camp
July 11-25, 2009, at Humboldt State University (Northwest California). The
Coalition is a partnership between HSU, local area Tribes, and funding from
the National Science Foundation under their Broadening Participation in
Computing Demonstration Project.
The all-expenses-paid, two-week camp explores computer gaming, geographic
information systems, digital media, and computerized Native language
preservation with HSU Computing Science Department Professors. Other HSU
staff teach college prep, applying to college and financial aid, and they
also provide information about HSU's Native American academic and social
support programs. Community Tribal members lead demonstrations and field
trips on Native Art, culture, language acquisition, and local Native-run
business and health endeavors.
