SWiFT: Summer Computer Science STEM program

SWiFT, Summer Computer Science STEM Camp for Women in Fort Collins, is an activity-based summer intensive STEM program hosted by Computer Science Department in Colorado State University. SWiFT is a free week-long summer camp for female students who are rising 11th graders at High Schools in Fort Collins, Colorado. The camp provides activity-based lerning and hands-on experience to demonstrate how mathematical concepts that students learn in school are applied to solve real-world problems using data science. The camp involves close, targeted mentoring and we are aiming for a student to instructor ratio of 2:1. All sessions are offered in an interactive computer lab located in the Computer Science Department.

We hope our summer program is just the start to your career in science and engineering.

What is STEM?

STEM is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math education. STEM fields are closely related and built on each other. For example, math provides the foundation for physics and engineerihg, engineers can apply their knowledge of physics to make cutting-enge devices that are useful for validating theries in physics.
