Black Girls CODE

July 18-299 a.m. – 4 p.m.

Students accepted: Girls ages 13–17

This two-week camp provides hands-on, project-based instruction with coding, community building and fun. Camp offers a space where girls can learn computer science and coding principles in the company of other girls, with mentorship from women they can see themselves becoming. Participants will be introduced to computing and will incorporate programming to build real-world applications to solve problems within their communities. Students end camp with a project that reflects their understanding of strategies in software development. For more information about the program, see the national Black Girls CODE site.

SEEC Program I

The Science & Engineering Exploration Camp is a one-week day camp that introduces campers to the exciting world of engineering, science and robotics. Attendees participate in activities that give them hands-on experiences similar to those of a college engineering and science students. Program participants will build and program a robot, while gaining an understanding of manufacturing techniques, robotic control systems, circuits and sensors. This is in addition to activities in the fundamentals of forensic science in biology and chemistry, as well as an exploration of health professions.

SEEC Program II

The second week of SEEC focuses on biomedical sciences and careers in health-related fields. Attendees will participate in hands-on activities similar to those a college student would experience including science lab experiments, activities in biomedical engineering, and visits to the Detroit Mercy School of Dentistry Simulation Lab and exposure to nursing and other allied health disciplines.
