    Do you dream of designing the next Instagram, Facebook or Snapchat? Do you love to build and experiment with new technology? Do you believe that an app can make the world a better place?

    We do too.

    Developed and taught by Brandeis Computer Science Professor Tim Hickey, App Design Boot Camp combines college-level coursework with field trips and social activities to provide you with an exciting and transformative summer experience.

    You'll learn what it takes to create your own groundbreaking web application using industry standard technology such as HTML5, CSS and the Meteor Javascript Web Platform!

    Together with talented teens from around the world, you’ll be given the tools to design a variety of apps pulled straight from your imagination that can be shared with family, friends, and fans the world over. 

    You'll have the chance to meet professional app developers at companies like Google and Fablevision and pitch your apps to them for feedback.

    Tuition: $3,300 

    In the Brandeis tradition of offering academic access to all students, App Design Boot Camp seeks each year to provide a limited number of scholarships to outstanding applicants who otherwise might not be able to afford this exceptional opportunity.
