Code the Future: Self-Driving Cars

  • Palo Alto College 1400 West Villaret Boulevard San Antonio, TX, 78224 United States (map)

Students participating in Code the Future Camps will be introduced to computer science through hands-on activities that teach students how coding can be used to solve problems and be creative. In this camp, students will be introduced to Python Programming, machine learning programing language, data science, and artificial intelligence. Students will use this knowledge to program miniature self-driving cars and discover the technologies behind self-driving cars like robotics, computer vision, motion, and many others. Students will explore and discover a wide range of technology careers by meeting different guest speakers who are founders of technology companies, software developers, engineers, and programmers. On the last day of camp, parents/guardians and friends will have the opportunity to see all the students’ projects during an End of Camp Showcase. No prior coding experience is required. Code the Future Camps are funded by the Texas Workforce Commission allowing for a free summer coding experience. Lunch will be provided for all Code the Future campers with support of the Texas Workforce Commission.

Must be able to attend 9 out of 10 days of camp
Must provide end-of-year report card at least one week prior to camp start.
