2. The Academy Full week of residency on campus Computer Science basics & robotics College Student & CS Alumni participation Interaction with Computer Science Professionals Funded by the Oklahoma State Board of Regent’s http://www.okcollegestart.org/Plan_for_College/Summer_Academies/_default.aspx 3. Why the Academy? To generate interest in computer science in underrepresented groups To increase their awareness of the usefulness and potential of computer science To provide an opportunity for exploration and experimentation for students in underrepresented groups To begin the 1st Year of Programming before these groups reach college To recruit for the field of computer science and ECU’s computer science program by introducing students to CS and robotics in their middle school and early high school years 4. Student Recruitment Available to any 8th – 11th grade students in Oklahoma No Prerequisites Why? Students shouldn’t be discouraged from trying No Prerequisites makes the statement that “Anyone can do this!” Online or Paper Application Website - http://robotics.ecok.edu/ Email to all school counselors in State of Oklahoma 5.
