The 8th annual Ivan G. Seidenberg Scholars Summer Computing Experience hosted by Dean Amar Gupta, the faculty, staff & students of the Seidenberg School and Pace University.
- To identify and develop the top students of computing in the nation entering their senior year of high school in fall, 2013.
- To participate in a creative, interactive, and entertaining multi-day technology development experience that leverages mobile apps to address societal needs.
We realize you still have a year of high school left, but we also know you're capable of handling college-level material. In community service collaborative sessions called design sprints, we help you expand your already considerable knowledge of information technologies by showing you how to apply it to real-life situations. And because only 24 students participate, you can speak freely with Pace students, professors, and administrators.
Team member and Innovator
You're also part of a team with an important task: to use software development, app building, and GIS (Geographic Information Systems) tools, among others, to build useful solutions for the NYC community. At the end of the week, your team presents its solution to the audience-great practice for when you attend academic conferences in college.
You're spending the week in the country's most exciting city, and we're going to make sure you see as much of it as you can. Our planned events include exploring neighborhoods like Little Italy, Chinatown, Midtown, and Downtown; visiting the Museum of Natural History; touring the South Street Seaport; and attending a Broadway show. And if you have any energy left, you can use your free time to add even more experiences to your visit.
