Summer At Standord - Logic Camp

Stanford University is holding two Logic Camps for High School students this summer: 

A.      The CS Logic Institute from June 17 – June 28
Rising 9th- 12th graders will learn Logic at Stanford through a computational perspective with applications in mathematics, science, engineering, business, and law. Experience modules on learning and thinking methods: collaborative, heuristics, Socratic, reflective, cognitive theories. This course also includes mentoring and elite college admissions counseling. Join only 31 other students in challenging coursework, engaging lectures, team and individual exercises, projects, puzzles, special events, and guests.

The cost is $2,000 per participant, but all students underrepresented in STEM will automatically be considered for a full scholarship from the CS Logic Institute. Flyer available here.

Application deadline is April 30th. For more information and to apply, please visit: http://intrologic.stanford.edu/logicinstitute/

B.      Logic is Fundamental from July 15 – July 26
Rising 9th – 12th graders will learn Logic through a computational perspective with applications in mathematics, science, engineering, business, and law. Join only 31 other students in challenging coursework, engaging lectures, team and individual exercises, projects, puzzles, special events, and guests. Taught by a Stanford Computer Science professor and logician and an award-winning High School teacher.

The cost is $2,000 per participant. Application deadline is April 30th. Flyer available here. For more information and to apply, please visit: http://intrologic.stanford.edu/logicisfundamental/
