Computer and Information Sciences hosts summer camp
Liberty Partnership students from Olean Middle School and Gowanda Middle School attended “Computer Science Summer Camp” in August at the SUNY Fredonia Department of Computer and Information Sciences.
Professor Derrik Decker, the Liberty Partnership director, and Adjunct Lecturer Gregory Cole, who serves as department Outreach Coordinator, planned and coordinated the event.
The group had an opportunity to work in new computer labs in the newly-renovated Houghton Hall. Mr. Cole taught students how to create mobile applications (apps), James Pratt taught the students about robotics, and Adjunct Lecturer Andrew Pingitore taught students how to create 3-D models using Blender software.
SUNY Fredonia student Prince Aziz Hunt led the group on a tour of the Fredonia campus, and Cole showed the students how to locate geocaches that are hidden on campus. The group enjoyed dining at the Cranston Dining Center during each day of camp.
Computer Science Camp activities were planned and organized by Cole.
