At Google, we are committed to helping the innovators of the future make the most of their gifts. We also believe open source development is a very useful and accessible way for passionate students to get involved with Computer Science in a practical and rewarding manner.
With this in mind, Google is excited to launch the Android Camp 2012 program! Up to 30 current freshmen and sophomore students will be selected to attend the all-expense-paid Android Camp at Google’s headquarters in Mountain View, California, from July 22 - July 28, 2012. The Android Camp will include interactive and collaborative curriculum focusing on a practical introduction to developing applications for Android and will explore the concepts behind Android, the framework for constructing an application, and the tools for developing, testing, and publishing software for the platform. Students will also get the opportunity to enjoy technical talks by Googlers, and social activities around the Bay Area.
- Provide top freshmen and sophomore students with exciting and interactive courses in Android development to build development competencies in the Android platform, culminating in application development at the end of the program.
- Allow students to get an inside look into the culture and work of Google.
- Facilitate connections between students and Googlers that will allow students to discover career paths and create meaningful academic experiences.
