The Coalition for American Indians in Computing is recruiting in-coming 11th and 12th grade self-identified Native American students for a computer camp July 11-25, 2009, at Humboldt State University (Northwest California). The Coalition is a partnership between HSU, local area Tribes, and funding from the National Science Foundation under their Broadening Participation in Computing Demonstration Project.
The all-expenses-paid, two-week camp explores computer gaming, geographic information systems, digital media, and computerized Native language preservation with HSU Computing Science Department Professors. Other HSU staff teach college prep, applying to college and financial aid, and they also provide information about HSU's Native American academic and social support programs. Community Tribal members lead demonstrations and field trips on Native Art, culture, language acquisition, and local Native-run business and health endeavors.
