App Camp 2017
App Camp is coming back to USU this summer. This camp is specifically for girls who want to learn more about coding and get a glimpse at what it takes to become a programmer. Those who participate will gain the skills they need to become coding mentors so they can take their newfound knowledge back to their schools and teach other like-minded students. This is a great opportunity GEAR UP girls to explore a new topic, make some great friends, and learn valuable skills - we hope to see you there!

Learn to Code
At App Camp, students learn to code by building their very own app. This is a chance for you to learn from top-notch Computer Science USU professors. Each day students spend time at the computer so they can gain an understanding of what it takes to code their own applications. Whether you are looking at programming as a career or if you just want to build your own apps for fun, then app camp is for you. We teach you the skills you need to have a foundation for reaching your goals.
While a good amount of time is spent in the lab learning how to code, there is much more to App Camp. GEAR UP has partnered with the Computer Science department for this camp, and we make sure there are plenty of activities to keep you busy and ensure you have a great experience with girls who share your same interests.
