April 26, 2024

Eastern Oklahoma State College will host its fourth Native Americans Who Code summer camp June 10-13, 2024.

Students from local schools will participate in a four-day camp designed to spark interest in coding, computer science, engineering, web design, drones and robotics. Campers will visit the Choctaw drone facility near Daisy, Okla. to observe drones and assist with missions. The camp is for incoming 8th-12th grade students and will meet from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. each day. Lunch will be provided. There is no cost to attend and space is limited. Register online by June 7, 2024.

The Native Americans Who Code summer camp will be designed and led by Eastern faculty members Brenda Strange and Kellye Semeski with assistance by Laura Myers. The camp is funded by Eastern’s $1.5 million NASNTI grant and is modeled on the Girls Who Code program.

Eastern plans to host a Native Americans Who Code camp each summer through 2025 and will feature topics such as advanced coding, robotics, games and app development.
