COLLEGE STATION – Twenty-six high school students had the opportunity to learn about programming, cybersecurity, electronics and engineering design at the Cyber Innovation Camp, which was held at the Texas A&M Engineering Extension Service (TEEX), held June 11-15.
The students learned to program Raspberry Pi computers using the Python programming language, and worked on projects that included facial recognition, SMART manufacturing and designing a photo booth.
“The camp was sponsored by TEEX and the Texas A&M Cybersecurity Center, allowing us to offer the weeklong day camp for just $200 tuition,” said Camp Coordinator Diane Cornwell of TEEX’s Knowledge Engineering Division. “I’d also like to thank the TEEXans who provided scholarships for students to attend the camp.
“This is another great example of how TEEX is giving back to the community and growing the workforce of the future,” she added.
TEEXans John Romero, John Walters, Brenda Grays and Antonio Watson assisted with leading and coordinating the camp.
The next Cyber Innovation Camp will be held July 30 — Aug. 3.
