Is Computer Science for you?

  • Do you like taking a large problem and thinking through how to break it up and make it solvable?
  • Do you like to organize things, e.g. the soccer team dinner, the post-prom party?
  • Do you like learning new ways to solve old problems?
  • Do you like puzzles, math, and using logic to figure things out?
  • If you’ve had a chance to take a computer science or programming class, did you enjoy it? Were you good at it?
  • Are you creative?

If you answered "yes" to some of these, Texas Computer Science Summer Camps may be just what you're looking for this summer. No advanced math or prior programming experience is required. What is required is curiosity about the most powerful artifact the human race has ever built.
