We have chosen Stanford University to host our teen programming courses in the Bay Area because of its beautiful campus and strategic location. Silicon Valley has a world-renowned reputation for innovation in science and technology, and is home to Moffett Field, NASA Ames Research Center, Facebook, Google, eBay, Intel, Yahoo! and dozens of other tech icons. Learn from brilliant minds and experiment in real-world, assignment-driven, intensive programming workshops at our teen computer programming camps at Stanford University. Within student workgroups, choose project teams and learn programming fundamentals. iD faculty and computer programmers from exciting Valley companies will give you real-world guidance and challenges. As part of the full university experience, students will eat in the campus dining halls and sleep in real dorms. All meals are included.
The Computer Science Department at Stanford falls under the umbrella of the School of Engineering, offering degrees including Bachelor of Science, Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy. The CS Department also consists of Computer Systems Engineering, Symbolic Systems and Mathematical and Computational Sciences. The Department of Computer Science began in 1965 and is a major player in both undergraduate and postgraduate learning. Major research is fostered in artificial intelligence, robotics, foundational computer science, scientific computing and systems. Students and faculty routinely collaborate with local industry and research facilities. The common purpose of the CS Department is the preparation of students for careers in research and teaching at the university level or at the industrial level.
The goal of the iD Coding & Engineering Academy at Stanford University is to act as a bridge between high school students (ages 13-18) and university-level computer science education. Students will be given in-depth projects and evaluated frequently. There is both independent and team-based curriculum, giving students a taste for what it is really like to collaborate on large-scale academic projects.
Our summer camps in Palo Alto, CA are held conveniently in the Bay Area, 30 miles from both San Jose International Airport and San Francisco International Airport. The Palo Alto Caltrain stop is also nearby.
