DkIT Summer Computing Camps 2018 Back by popular demand, the latest installment of the DkIT Summer Computing Camps is taking place on the DkIT campus during the month of July. Following on from the successes of recent years, eight camps are taking place over the duration of four weeks.
 
During the first week, the attendees were introduced to some basic aspects of computing, while in the second week, the learners take on some more advanced modules.
Weeks 3 and 4 will be focused on the fundamentals of Computer Science,
• How do computers work?
• How do they talk to one another?
• What is the internet?
• How do programs work?
 
 
Beginning from basics, we work over the camp towards creating a fully functioning weather station that records, stores and displays temperature data. Attendees will also get to keep your own fully functioning computer, the Raspberry Pi! This year we are introducing a new Animation Camp where students will be introduced to numerous techniques including modelling, keyframe animation, lighting, setting up cameras and rendering images. The aim of the camps is to provide those in attendance with a taster of the field of computing, initiating thoughts for a future career in the sector but above all to have fun!.
 
 
Organised by the Institute’s Department of Computing Science and Mathematics, the camps are attracting second-level students (aged 12-17 years old) from Dundalk, Drogheda, Dunleer and further afield, Carrickmacross, Castleblayney, Navan, and Warrenpoint. The camps have also attracted a large number of girls with almost 40% of the attendees being female. Under the guidance of DkIT’s computing tutors, the Summer Computing Camps are giving the attendees an insight into the ever-evolving and changing landscapes of the computing and technology sectors, and should stand them in good stead as they continue their studies at second-level and hopefully one day, at third-level.
There are still a few places left on Camps 5, 6 and 7.
