The Gator Computing Program is for high school students interested in learning more about the role of computers in society, research, and the economy.

If you come to the Gator Computing Program, you will get the opportunity to:
– meet with UF faculty from the engineering, social sciences, medical research, and biotechnology disciplines
– use emerging technologies, such as 3-D printing, Augmented Reality, and Virtual Reality
– take coding classes and learn about the importance of computing and technology in a variety of fields
– tour of campus laboratories for an up-close view of the scientific environment
– tour the UF Data Center, home to HiPerGator, the state of Florida’s first supercomputer
– work on project teams and use tools introduced during the two-week program to solve real-world problems

Don’t take our word for it! Here’s what last year’s participants had to say:

“This program has broadened my mind about the world of computing. Computing is not limited to computers and programming but has large applications to biology, medical fields, astronomy, material science, physics, pathogens, and much more. I am much more interested in computing and am seriously considering computing in college. The program itself was formatted greatly. I will definitely recommend this to my friends at school. Thanks for the extraordinary experience!”

“I loved the GCP. The staff was amazing. The tours were even better and the activities were engaging. I met amazing people that I’m now glad to call my friends. I’m now also really interested in going to UF!”
