Our son, Milton, participated in 3 SDSC StudentTECH courses this summer. He loved each one – coding and robotics – and learned so much. Every day he would come home and continue working on the coding techniques he learned during class. The courses were taught by very experienced and enthusiastic instructors. Everything ran so smoothly, especially with the help of wonderful high school and college students. Drop-off an pick-up at the USCD Supercomputer Center was also very smooth and easy. We look forward to having him participate in more StudentTECH courses next summer. We highly recommend this program to any 3rd – 5th grader who is passionate about technology.

TUNE IN TO SDSC TV – SDSC Summer Workshop Fun Captured in Video
Summer 2017 at the San Diego Supercomputer was the best ever! Offering the most workshops we ever have and introducing our StudentTECH Junior program for 3rd-5th graders, it was a summer to remember. In case you missed it, our videography intern, Warren Phan of Mt. Carmmel High School, created a series of videos to showcase our programs, our instructors and our campers. Please take a look at. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC23Z8w7HynDNJWn_MnwAQ8g.
