One of the most important features of our camps is to teach students with hands-on experience — in-class guided code writing.
AlphaStar Winter Computer Science Camp is a unique opportunity for interested and talented students to improve their Computer Science skills during winter break, where students are guided and trained by expert faculty via utilizing national and international competitions in a fun and challenging environment.
The camp consists of two types of courses:
- Booster Courses for intensive preparation for the upcoming USACO contests. They consist of analysis, discussion, and solution of last 3 years’ USACO problems, and exam strategies.
- Accelerated Programming / USACO Fundamental Courses give a chance to take some of the programming / USACO Fundamental courses offered in the Fall in a short amount of time.
NOTE: Registered students will receive an email one week in advance of the camp regarding the necessary preparations.
NOTE: Students are expected to bring their laptops.
