STUDENT INFORMATION

SAMSUNG MOBILE APPS BOOT CAMP
SUMMER 2012 PHOTOS AND VIDEO

"...This has been a once in a lifetime rewarding opportunity for me and I'm sure I'll benefit from both the information and experience for the rest of my life."
—11th grade student, San Francisco Boot Camp attendee

The summer 2012 Samsung Mobile Apps Boot Camps, held in San Francisco, Dallas, Atlanta, and Boston in July and August, were attended by approximately 120 top high school students interested in science, technology, engineering and/or math. The camps gave students the opportunity to work with mobile technology leaders and college educators. The camps also provided an opportunity to learn more about the local engineering programs at the universities in their communities.

The student attendees completed the action-packed, information-filled two days by bringing an amazing array of enthusiasm and ideas to each of the camps. Take a look for yourself!
