What is Artemis?
The Artemis Project is a five-week summer program for girls entering 9th grade who are interested in science and technology. It bears no cost to the participants. Transportation is provided to all students through RIPTA bus passes.
Time & Place
The program is held on the Brown University campus from June 25th to July 27th.
What will you learn?
We begin by introducing the computer and its basic functions. Through practical experience with Windows XP, Macintosh, and UNIX, you will gain an understanding of these operating systems and of the fundamental workings of a computer.
We will focus on the use of logic and deductive reasoning in exploring topics in computer science, such as object-oriented programming, artificial intelligence (i.e. smart robots), and computer animation. You will be introduced to some of the most cutting-edge discoveries in computer science.
In addition you will learn the practical skills needed for word processing, e-mail, and the World Wide Web.
By the end of the program, you will have practical skills and conceptual background that will allow you to follow your curiosity and interests in any direction they may lead you.
Who can apply?
Creative and motivated girls who are curious about math, science, or computers and are entering 9th grade in Fall 2007 are qualified to apply for Artemis. No prior computer experience is necessary.
