 Lincoln University’s Department of Computer Science will host its second information technology summer camp for middle and high school students.

The residential camp is designed to introduce students to the field of computer science and technology, and expose them to life as a college student. Students will live on campus Monday through Friday, and return home on the weekends.

“Students will expand their knowledge in computer science and technology, and gain skills necessary to develop their leadership potential,” said Haydar Teymourlouei, associate professor and interim chair of the computer science department. 

During their time on campus, students will have the opportunity to take a variety of courses including cybersecurity, encryption, email phishing, game design, computer programming and more. 

Camp hours are 9:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m., June 11 – 28, at the Ivory V. Nelson Science Center on Lincoln University’s main campus. The application deadline is April 26.
