What is CSExplore?


The Computer Science and Engineering department CSExplore Camp is an exciting 3 day program designed to give high school girls an engaging, fun-filled and hands-on immersive summer experience.

What Will You Be Doing?

Attendees will explore the fundamentals of computing from the low-level hardware of circuits all the way to the high-level logic of writing software. To embrace the diversity of the field, activities also include programming a robot and designing a video game.

Where Will Your Be?

This day camp will take place on UB’s North campus, with occasional trips to some of campus’s exciting research labs that apply computing to solve meaningful real-world problems.


July 17-19, 2019, 8:30am - 4:30pm
