    Organizing Summer Computer Graphics Camps

Abstract:


    This presentation explains how the annual Computer Graphics Summer Camp at Purdue University is organized and operated. The discussion includes how students are identified for inclusion in the program, funding issues, computer project sessions, student participation, software and hardware uses, tours, and entertainment. While this camp was previously operated as a regional resource, it is now open to students from all U.S. states and territories. The camp’s success has led the sponsoring department to extend the program to include professional educators in computer graphics, math, and science in their own camp to increase their technological literacy.
