|Description||CS KickStart is a one week introductory program to computer science. Students learn how to program, meet computer science students and professionals, and are introduced to different areas of computer science. This program targets incoming students to UC Berkeley who are curious about computer science and are interested in math, science or engineering. Students do not need to have any prior skills in programming. Our goal is to give them a hands-on experience in programming and to show them the creativity and power of computer science.|
Welcome to Berkeley! We would like to inform you about CS KickStart, a one week program that targets female freshmen who enjoy math, science, or design and are curious about computer science. As part of CS KickStart you will live together with other freshmen for one week before the Fall semester starts to explore computer science through various activities, such as programing labs, faculty lectures, and alumnae industry presentations.
CS KickStart is a great opportunity for students planning to major in computer science, math, physics, stats, economics or any other science field! It is also a wonderful chance for students who are unsure of their major to explore one option. You do not need to have any experience in programming in order to participate in CS KickStart and the program. Additionally, everything, including the accommodation, is free of charge. You can apply to CS KickStart and find further information about it on this website http://cs-kickstart.berkeley.edu/. Also please do not hesitate to contact us if you have questions! The application deadline is June 7.
