Summer Coding Camp

Learning python and programming a robot

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 the diverse career pathways available in computer science.
  • Interact with Argonne staff members who are at the forefront of high-performance computing and visualization.
