A summer camp with programming at Imperial College London is an excellent opportunity for children and teenagers to prove themselves, to achieve certain advances in programming, to acquire friends and like-minded people around the world. The program Imperial College London Summer (Summer camp with IT, programming) is designed in such a way that participants can learn different techniques and methods, the latest developments in the studied areas, gain practical experience and make valuable acquaintances. Imperial College London (Imperial College London), on the basis of which the summer camp is held, is one of the best higher educational institutions in Britain and is part of the so-called "golden triangle" - a number of leading educational institutions of the country located in Oxford, Cambridge and London and having world recognition as the fundamental centers of modern science.
Training programs are available for children and adolescents from around the world at the age of 13 to 18 years: study involves development in the field of IT and programming and through this the active practice of English. Within the program, several options are available:
Most of the time is devoted to practical work - students during the program learn to cope with the most difficult tasks and create complex projects. At the end of the training each student receives his own portfolio, which will be useful for further admission to higher education institutions in the relevant profile.
Living in one of the most beautiful capitals of Europe and the world, students have the opportunity to get acquainted with the numerous sights, unique monuments of history and culture of the city and country, and also have fun.
Participation in the programs of the Imperial College London Summer summer camp with IT and programming gives children and teenagers an excellent opportunity to learn different types of programming, to tighten their level of English, to gain invaluable experience (a confirmed portfolio of personal works) and to find friends and like-minded people from all over the world!
The training programs at the Imperial College of London are distinguished by a high level of quality and professionalism in teaching. Available programs on the basis of the so-called Academy of Coding and Engineering (iD Coding & Engineering Academy) for children and adolescents aged 13 to 18 years. Types of programs include coding and / or game development, depending on the type and direction of the program, various tools and platforms are studied: Python, PyCharm, TensorFlow, C ++, Microsoft Visual Studio, iOS, Swift, Xcode. Courses last 2 weeks, classes are held from Monday to Friday, on weekends can be held additional classes (independent work), or excursion and entertainment program. Training has a clearly expressed practical character: all students of all directions are professionally engaged in development and create their own projects. A big advantage is that at the end of the training, students receive not only their practical working projects, but also a portfolio of works (in online or digital format) that is necessary for further admission to the specialty of the relevant profile.
Directions and content of the programs:
In the modern world, the demand for real professionals in the field of cybersecurity is higher than ever. The participants of the 2-week camp study the basic elements of the theory and practice of encryption and cryptography, ways of hiding and storing information in digital environments such as images, music and video are immersed in the world of hashing and Linux. Students acquire effective working skills in Python and PyCharm. At the end of the program, students receive their working projects and the assembly of works for the portfolio, which is necessary for admission to college.
The students of this direction are faced with broad tasks and topics: they learn to use TensorFlow to create a neural network, learn Python, optimize the speed of learning, develop coding skills and logical thinking. After graduation, the student receives a "digital portfolio" (portfolio), which is necessary for admission to the college for specialized training specialties.
Participants in this area should have a certain level of knowledge of algebra, namely: knowledge of variables, integers and absolute values, as well as the ability to evaluate algebraic expressions using the order of operations and distributive properties. Participants in this area study all aspects of the C ++ language, create and track game objects, add graphics and controls to the game, implement algorithms to solve problems of game development, such as creating a path and creating a map. At the end of the training, the student receives the files obtained during the development of the project, as well as a portfolio for the college, available online.
Participants in this course are subject to certain requirements for knowledge of algebra. Students develop the following goals and problems: implementing the game cycle, adding graphics and controls to the game, developing an API for creating game content, creating a basic code that can be used for various games. Upon completion of the training, the student receives his design work and portfolio for admission to college (in digital format).
Today, the development of applications for iOS is more accessible than ever, thanks to the help of Swift. First, students learn Swift both interactively and intuitively. Then they go to Xcode and Interface Builder to learn how to create an application from scratch. During the course of the program, students receive a unique work experience and achieve a number of tasks: create a complete application for the iPhone¸ learn to use the Xcode Storyboard to organize user interface elements, test and sharpen iPhone applications using the Xcode emulator, develop coding skills, logical thinking and create real applications. At the end of the training, the student receives the files received at work, and the portfolio for the college in online mode.
The cost of training in all directions (with accommodation and meals) = from $ 5990/2 weeks.
During the course, participants are accommodated at the Imperial College of London. The college has both its own residences and residences run by partner companies, all residences without exception have a high level of comfort and are located in close proximity to the campus of the college. Characteristics of accommodation:
The camp organizes a full-fledged meal for participants several times a day, children do not need anything and can choose the preferred dishes.
Living in London, summer camp students can enjoy all the benefits of one of the most beautiful capitals of the world.

Children get acquainted with cultural sights and monuments of history and architecture of the city and country, visit theaters and cinemas, music concerts and performances; also make sightseeing trips around the city and the surrounding area (with a special guide).
The equipment and technical level of the college will envy any educational institution not only in Britain, but all over the world. Here there are scientific and technical laboratories, which are rightfully considered to be one of the best, and their equipment - first-class examples of the triumph of modern technical thought. So the participants of the programs are provided with all the necessary equipment for the successful process of teaching and realizing their ideas. In addition, program participants enjoy all the benefits and opportunities of the college:
