Summer Camp for Middle School Students
Since 2013, I have been organizing an annual STEM camp for middle school students from Cortez, Colorado. The camp, Math in Action in Computer Science (MACS), focuses on making connections between Math and computer science. The camp includes sessions where students learn to code and write programs for distance measures, probability, and matrix operations. For the past few years, this has been the highlight of my summers and I love doing this. It's incredible seeing how students come up to speed with writing computer programs and concepts such as conditionals, loops, and recursion.
