Coding Camp For Girls
A one week camp at High Technology High School
Cancelled. The Monmouth County School District has cancelled all summer camps at MAST and High Technology High School so we won't be able to offer this camp this summer.
Bummer! But the safety of our students and faculty is paramount.
Come Explore with Us
Are you looking for something fun and creative? Do you like exploring? Do you wonder about the future?
We invite you to spend a week with a group of curious girls like yourself. You’ll have fun discovering new skills in the increasingly important world of computing. You’ll get to talk with professional women who’ll share their stories of finding their passion and answer your questions.
This program will be a hands on adventure into the world of coding. You’ll be exposed to coding and the use of sensors to gather information from the world around you. You need to be curious and interested in exploring. You don’t need to know computer programming. More details about our program are here.
Our Coding Camp for Girls is for girls who will complete the 6th, 7th or 8th grades in June 2020.
We paired our Coding Camp For Girls with our Robotics Camp for Girls so you can take one or both. Coding Camp is July 6-10 while the Robotics camp is July 13-17. Each camp costs $300 for the week but you can take both camps for only $500.

Any questions, please call Mr. Roche at 732-609-2797.
What's going to happen?
You’ll learn coding, discover basic principles of programming common to a number of different programming languages, and develop your first programs using Snap! - a language developed at University of California Berkley. You’ll have the option to share your programs with friends and family on phones and tablets. We'll also have access to a 3D printer that you're welcome to use should you propose a project that could make use of it.
Dates and Times
Our program will meet for one week, Monday - Friday, from July 6-10, 2020. Classes will meet from 8:00 AM – 1:00 PM at High Technology High School on the Brookdale Community College Campus.
Students must provide their own transportation to and from HTHS. Students should bring their own snacks and lunch.
We’re excited to be able to operate out of the research wing at High Technology High School this year. Mr. Roche will be teaching the course assisted by his team of TAs who are current HTHS students.
Mr. Roche is the research advisor and biology teacher at High Technology High School and will lead the first week.
The on-line application deadline is June 26. We will send out "rolling acceptance emails" during the spring. Final acceptances will be sent on June 30 via email.
Tuition for this one week course is $300. Or $500 if you elected to take both the Coding Camp for Girls and Robotics Camp for Girls.
The program is open to girls who will have completed the 6th, 7th or 8th grade by June, 2020. Students must have earned a B or better in the current year's science course.
Please fill out the on-line application. We'll send you an email acknowledgement that we received it.
