Gems Computer Science Camp for Girls

From Heather Zike at @IllinoisCS:


For the first time ever we will be offering our camp to females in high school.  This camp will be for two weeks so that they will be able to work in more depth with a CS counselors on a project.  We know high schoolers have busy schedules and they do not have to commit to all day every day.  Once they register they can come during our open hours.


We have 4 themes for our middle schoolers, girls going into 6th, 7th or 8th grade.

Those themes are: Game Design, CS & the Environment, Wearable Computing, CS & the Arts

Students should rank in order of which camps is their top priority.  We may not be able to accommodate every student into all camps requested.  Themes might be the same or similar to past years, but it is a new curriculum that is developed each summer.


To apply and find out additional information please go to our website:

We are also hoping to create more outreach opportunities within our community.  If you school or organization would like to work with us or would like help planing something CS related for the next school year please feel to contact us.
