HAMMOND – Southeastern Louisiana University’s College of Science and Technology
is hosting a virtual computer science camp this summer for students entering eighth

to students with any level of coding experience.
Sponsored by Southeastern’s Department of Computer Science, the camp is one week long. Two separate sessions are available July 19-22 and July 26-29. Students may register for the session that best fits their schedules. Both sessions are online and take place each day from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
“The Lion’s Code Camp provides an enjoyable summer camp experience for high school students that challenges students academically in the foundational concepts of computer science and builds the skills of teamwork, public speaking and relationship building,” said Instructor of Computer Science and Camp Coordinator Bonnie Achee.
Achee said students will be introduced to several aspects of computer science including cyber security, cyber literacy, and python programming.
“Students will participate in a virtual capture the flag and work together in teams as cyber-sleuths to solve a cybercrime. They will have the opportunity to learn about career opportunities in computer science and cyber security, as well as work with the Southeastern’s Career Services to begin creating a professional resume.
Registration is available at southeastern.edu/registerlionscodecamp. Each camp session is limited to 100 students on a first come, first served basis. Pre-registration opens on April 1, 2021.
