Applications Postponed

The University at Buffalo has been actively monitoring developments related to COVID-19. We are waiting for further guidance from the CDC and Erie County Department of Health before opening 2020 Summer Camp applications. In the meantime, we encourage you to subscribe to our mailing list to receive updates related to SEAS Summer Camps.


A 3-day camp for high school girls that teaches the fundamentals of computing.

About the event

The Computer Science and Engineering department's CSExplore Camp is an exciting 3 day program designed to give high school girls an engaging, fun-filled and hands-on immersive summer experience.

Attendees will explore the fundamentals of computing from the low-level hardware of circuits all the way to the high-level logic of writing software. To embrace the diversity of the field, activities also include programming a robot and designing a video game.

This day camp will take place on UB’s North campus, with occasional trips to some of campus’s exciting research labs that apply computing to solve meaningful real-world problems. No prior experience in computing or engineering is expected.

Who can attend?

CSExplore welcomes all high school girls entering grades 9-12 this fall to register and participate. No prior programming experience is required!

Additional information

Students do not need any prior programming experience to attend. CSExplore welcomes all high school girls (entering grades 9-12 this fall) to register and participate regardless of prior computer science and engineering knowledge and background.
