Providing high school students opportunities, tools, and motivation to excel in Computer Science.
There is no tuition for either camp this year though donations to the department are encouraged.
Notification letters will be sent on 5 to 10 days after a completed application is received..
Additional materials (transcript, recommendations, essay, etc.) must be mailed in one package and received by the application deadline (June 8th).
We typically have 25 to 30 students participate in our program. Returning students have first priority. We consider all students who meet our eligibility criteria, show academic achievement and demonstrate potential to contribute to and be successful in our program. We consider our program need-based - for students who do not have access to computer science curriculum and opportunities at their home high school. We encourage students who have a computer science curriculum to explore these opportunities at their high school.
NO. Most of our students do not have advanced knowledge in computer science.
Students will be responsible for transportation to and from the University of Pittsburgh
Priority is given to students attending high schools in Pittsburgh and surrounding areas. Students who live outside of Pittsburgh can apply to the program. If accepted, the student and their family are responsibly for housing, transportation and all other expenses. We are not a residential program and do not have the resources to accommodate the needs of non-local students.
Students are expected to attend every day. Students are working on team projects throughout the summer and it is imperative that every member of the team equally contributes. To successfully complete the program, the student must not miss more than two days for the Robotics Academy or one day for the Tech Divaz Workshop. Absences must be submitted in writing by a parent or guardian at least 2 days in advance. Family vacations or other activities should be planned around the time the child is attending a TLI program.
The curriculum is developed by and taught by outstanding faculty members and graduate, as well as undergraduate, students who are carefully chosen by their academic achievment and excellence in teaching and research. Our teachers are able to relate to high school students and create an environment that is conducive to learning.
