Fordson High School

Google Computer Science Camp

Greetings from Google! 

Google’s Computer Science Summer Institute (CSSI) is a three-week introduction to computer science for graduating high school seniors with a passion for technology — especially students from historically underrepresented groups in the field. Google’s mission is to organize the world’s information and we’re seeking computer scientists from every background to help achieve this goal! 

CSSI is not your average summer camp. It’s an intensive and interactive program that seeks to inspire the tech leaders and innovators of tomorrow by supporting the study of computer science, software engineering, and other closely-related subjects.

You can expect:

a specially designed project-based curriculum to help prepare for your CS studies 
daily development sessions to help you prepare for future job opportunities
interaction directly with Google Engineers
exposure and insight into Google’s internship programs and technical career opportunities
