HSCC Info:

The High School Computer Camp (HSCC) is a program designed to bridge the gap between the needs of the Information Technology (IT) industry and the students' ability to succeed in a changing environment. HSCC introduces high school students to computer training by giving them access to IT professionals who provide technical training, mentoring and leadership skills.

Focus of the Program:

The focus of the program is for students to go on to pursue IT as a field of college study and to become highly qualified IT professionals and leaders within the industry. The following are some of the benefits the students receive as part of their participation in the camp:

  • Marketable technical and soft skills development for future employment opportunities
  • Increased exposure to latest technology
  • Mentoring from IT and other business professionals
  • Access to intern programs and college scholarships
  • Leadership and team building skill development
  • Improved scholastic aptitude

The camp has been in existence for several years. Students have been recruited from Normal Community, Normal Community West, Bloomington and University High. In the first year of the camp there were approximately 15 students enrolled and five of these students went on to the national computer competition in Dallas Texas to compete with their peers from all over the country. The students took 9th place overall out of 23 other teams participating. The program has received solid support from local businesses in terms of funding and internships. Students from prior years have participated in State Farm's intern program.

For the national competition, high school students will have an opportunity to compete as a team of 3-5 members in a web-design contest utilizing Java, SQL, and various web technologies such as Eclipse and MySQL. Students will have up to six hours to complete the given project. Three prizes (first, second, and third place) will be awarded.
