Artemis is a five-week summer program for rising 9th grade girls focused on computer science. Participants learn computer languages such as Scratch, AppInventor, HTML, CSS, and Python. They also are introduced to robotics, cryptography, artificial intelligence, and circuits. In addition, they learn how computer science is applied in the real world by hearing from guest speakers and going on field trips. BU undergraduates majoring in Computer Science or Engineering lead the program. There is no tuition, but a nonrefundable registration fee of $100 is required of all participants once they have been accepted into the program. Lunch is included each day.
