I saw this announcement on the SIGCSE mailing list. If you’ve thought about running a computer science summer camp this may be the training you need to get it going. If you are from some states (Alabama, California, Georgia, Indiana, Mass, Puerto Rico, and South Carolina) that are part of the NSF funded project that has created this workshop there may be the possibility of getting some funding grant money. There will also be an option for online participation if you can’t get to California for it in person.
Georgia Tech has been running computing summer camps for 4th - 12th graders for years. Our camps get statistically significant improvements in attitudes toward computing and gains in content knowledge. The camps are also financially self-sustaining in that they bring in more money than they cost to run.
As part of our current Expanding Computing Education Pathways NSF grant we are holding a workshop on How to Run a Computing Summer Camp - Logistics on Saturday Dec 13th from 9:00am to 3:30pm at Santa Clara University in California. Attendees from our partner and associate states (Alabama, California, Georgia, Indiana, Mass, Puerto Rico, and South Carolina) can apply for up to $4999.99 in "seed" funds for equipment.
People can also participate remotely. All they will need is a browser and internet connection. We will be using Blackboard Collaborate.
