Coding for Science Camp

At Argonne’s summer computing workshop, high school students have a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to learn how to code from some the best and brightest computer scientists in the nation. No prior coding experience necessary.

Applications are now closed for the 2022 Coding for Science summer camp! However, you can still add your name to wait list below. We are tentatively planning on having this year’s camp in-person. However, the camp may move to virtual, contingent upon local COVID infection rates. Participants will be notified of any changes.

In this free, five-day enrichment experience, students learn Python, and connect with Argonne computer scientists.

Through the course of this program, participants can expect to:

  • Enhance their problem-solving and teamwork skills through hands-on activities.
  • Develop a 21st-Century skill in a supportive and collaborative environment.
  • Discover how computing is useful and sometimes essential to solving problems in science.
  • Explore the diverse career pathways that coding can support.
  • Interact with Argonne staff members who are at the forefront of high-performance computing and visualization.

Through all these enriching experiences and more, students will take their computer science skills, develop them further, and find ways to apply them to key science problems, opening up new opportunities on the path toward STEM-related careers.
