First Coding, Cyber-security and Data Summer Camp

Twenty-three students attended the first Southern Arkansas University Coding, Cybersecurity and Data Summer Camp June 5-7, 2017, which concluded with an awards ceremony held in the Science Building. Students learned coding principles, designing simple games using processing; developed simple Android apps; created virtual landscapes and simulated nature using Unity; classified images using Matlab, and explored the cybersecurity and computer forensics fields. Activities included painting, chess and card games. The goal of the camp was to grow interest in studying computer science among high school students.

Dr. Shaban coordinated and organized the camp, and participants were Sarajane Telford, Brittany Smith, Dr. Md Karim, Dr. Rami Alroobi, Dr. Xin Yang, Dr. Jongyeop Kim, James Stewart and Dr. Justin Rice (NASA).
