ABOUT

 

The 39th Annual Computer Camp is the legacy of the former Arizona Council of Black Engineers and Scientists organization. It was started by this group of dedicated engineers, architects, educators, and others to encourage, inform and educate young people to learn about engineering and science. Over the years, hundreds of high school and some middle school students have spent the month of July learning critical thinking skills through learning a computer programming language.  Many of those students have gone on to pursue their education in engineering, computers, and the sciences.
