Missouri University of Science and Technology’s Computer Highly Interactive
Program (CHIP) is the perfect summer experience for high school juniors and
seniors interested in working with computers and digital technologies.
Registration for CHIP is now open to students entering the 11th and 12th
grades in the fall of 2008. Camp will be held from July 20 to 24 at Missouri
CHIP is now in it’s third year at Missouri S&T and has become a popular
summer program for high school students interested in learning more about
opportunities in the fields of computer engineering, computer science and
information science and technology.
During CHIP, campers get hands-on experience working with computers. They
are able to tour the various computer-related departments on campus to learn
more about what interests them, spend time learning about computer programming
in a university laboratory and program a robotic vehicle. CHIP also gives
campers a chance to learn about college life and meet other students from
across the nation who share their interest in computers.
CHIP campers can choose to live on the Missouri S&T campus during the
program, or commute campus. The fee for those residing on campus is $425 and
$325 for those who will commute.
