SHIP 2015 applications open

February 1,2015

We are happy to announce that CSTUY is accepting applications for our Summer Hackers Immersion Program (SHIP) 2015.

SHIP is a one month, Monday through Friday, full day program hosted at St. Joseph's College in Brooklyn.

Beginners program will use the popular Java environment, Processing to gain a solid foundation in programming while experienced students will use Python and Javascript to develop web based applications. All students will use real world tools and will also hear from experts from the New York Tech community.

More information can be found here: http://cstuy.org/programs/ship

Applications can be filed here: http://applications.cstuy.org

Email questions to: ship@cstuy.org

We are looking for rising 9th through 12th graders both new to programming and those with experience.

Here's what some of the shipmates said about last year's edition:

As someone who grew up in the a. the south, b. the suburbs, CSTUY was a breath of fresh air that allowed me to experience computer science without the stigma attached to it that 'its a man's field'. Spending a month in the city surrounded by students who not only love the experience of learning but being surrounded by students my age who are successful programmers and are willing to share their knowledge and help beginners was refreshing.
Not only have I enjoyed myself far more than I ever would have in a school CS class. But I learned just as much, if not more, than I ever would have in an entire year of coding at school. Tomorrow I am leaving happier, and more prepared than I ever would have been leaving my freshman CS class. A year early!
Thoroughly enjoyable. I've made a few really great friends through this program and I've learned a lot through processing and my fantastic teachers :). This four week learning experience has taught me significantly more than I thought I would be able to learn in a four week period

And their parents (shipmates names removed since they might not want their parents talking about them).

My son, ____, was happy to see the weekend pass so he could get back to class. In nine years of school, that’s the first time he’s ever said that.
_____ absolutely loves the program, and I'm thrilled with how much he has learned in such a short time, and how engaged he has been in the process.
____ is having an absolutely wonderful time, and he's really enjoying the program. He loves the teachers and his classmates. We're all very impressed with how well run and coordinated the program is. _____ is having a blast, which isn't always the case with summer camps.
