Summer Coding Camp

The application deadline has past for the 2017 camp. Invitation letters will be sent by email the second week of May.


At Argonne's summer coding camp, 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. In this free five-day enrichment experience, students learn Python, connect with Argonne computer scientists and program a robot via a Raspberry Pi.

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

  • enhance their problem-solving and teamwork skills through our hands-on activities
  • test their programming skills in a collaborative environment
  • explore career pathways available in computer science
  • interact with Argonne staff at the forefront of high performance computing and visualization
