Web design and software programming are perhaps the most sought-after skills in this hi-tech era. For tech-savvy students who want a leg up in the competition by building critical computer skills early in life, or for students who just love gaming, design and logic, Education Unlimited’s Computer Camp offers hands-on instruction in both creative and practical computer skills. Experienced instructors encourage students to use their imaginations while exploring fundamental and emerging technologies and software.
Why an Education Unlimited Computer Camp?
Individualized Instruction. EU seeks to offer the most personalized instruction possible, with separate sessions for elementary, middle and high school campers that break students into skill-level groups. Students are placed in small classes with remarkably low student to teacher ratios. On the first day, instructors assess each student’s previous experience and knowledge in order to challenge them appropriately and provide a fun, tailored learning experience.
A Computer for Each Student. Each student receives his/her up-to-date PC during the course of the program.
Top Instructors. We recruit instructors from top Universities and/or hire experienced industry professionals. Each instructor has a specialty in some aspect of web programming and/or design, in addition to experience working with K-12 students.
University Campus Life. Students at Computer Camp live in the heart of American computer innovation- the San Francisco Bay Area. Participants eat in university dining halls and take classes on-campus. They play sports on sprawling green quads, watch movies in dorm lounges, and get a taste of the exciting life of a college student on a prestigious campus.
Challenging Core Curriculum. Each session gives students an opportunity to focus on a particular specialty.
Our 2013 specialities include:
Web Design (June 23 - 28 at UC Berkeley and July 28 - Aug 3 at Stanford)
Java Programming (July 28 - Aug 3 at Stanford)
Programmers universally use Java Programming language to code software applications and games. Our curriculum begins with teaching students Java syntax through Karel the Robot. Students learn about Java in the scope of mathematics and logic and eventually draw graphics with looping. The climax of the Java curriculum culminates with students designing and executing simple games by implementing the knowledge they have acquired about this sophisticated computer language.
Business and Technology (August 4 - 9 at Stanford)
This special focus week for middle school students allows campers to learn the fundamental software skills used in the corporate world, such as office suites, spreadsheets, and presentation sofrware. Fun activities allow students to apply the software skills to business problems. Examples of past projects include building a business plan, modeling the stock market on a spreadsheet, designing a business website, building a business database, developing a resume, and designing product packaging. Through hands-on instruction in business software, such as spreadsheets, Filemaker, and web-based SAS applications students gain practical skills that can be applied to class projects or to their entrepreneurial ambitions. Students will give a final showcase presentation to parents using Powerpoint, Preszi or other presentation software.
Elementary Education Week (August 11 - 16 at Stanford)
Offered exclusively at Stanford University, this special session of Computer Camp is designed to meet the needs of younger students entering the 4-6 grades. Elementary Education students will study the same basic skills as standard Computer Camp students in a setting designed to encourage younger students’ enthusiasm for the activities. Our supportive and experienced staff lead fun educational activities and provide supervision that is appropriate for these younger students. Campers survey Web Design and Desktop Publishing. They create a web page on a topic of their own choosing, such as a favorite sport or cartoon. Students also work together to create a Camp Newsletter, each designing a page of their own. Classroom hours, recreational activities, and supervision are adjusted specifically for elementary school students. During this session, special commuter and extended care options are available, though students may also choose to stay in the campus dorms. Contact Education Unlimited for pricing details.
"The best feature of this camp was the amazing amount of time we spent doing practice applications with the programming language, gaining lots of hands on experience." -Murtaza Munaim, Computer Camper
“(The instructor) is fun and lets us learn hands-on and is there when we need help...I want to come back.” -Cathy McDermott, Computer Camper
