That’s why we created SoarCS, where you will:
Open to all first-year, full-time computer science students, SoarCS is committed to creating a diverse and inclusive environment. We highly encourage students from multicultural backgrounds, first-generation students and female students to take advantage of the program.
Thanks to our sponsors, the program is free. Space is limited, so apply by Tuesday, June 30, 2020.
This summer, SoarCS will take place virtually from Monday, July 20 through Thursday, Aug. 13. Each week we will have a live video tutorial, two panels and a wrap-up/share out. These sessions will be available later as recordings. We’ll also have optional activities that you can complete on your own schedule, and an always-open chat space.
Before we start, we will send you a package of materials, including a micro:bit miniature computer and a T-shirt. To participate in the program, you need a PC, Mac or Chromebook with internet access, and an iPhone or Android phone.
Please be in touch if you have any questions. Keep the learning going!
