STEM Education Opportunity
For teenagers looking to further their technology education, Emagination’s Programming Camp offers the perfect opportunity to develop real world programming skills.

Our programming camp program teaches teens the basics of C# and shows them how to use Microsoft’s most popular dynamic language to build Windows, XML Web services and other client-server applications. With the power of C++, the ease of Visual basic and many Java like features, C# is one of the most powerful programming languages today. Based on the .Net framework from Microsoft, this object oriented language allows users both beginning and advanced to create quick applications that can be used in the real world.

Teens travel to Emagination Programming Camp by car, plane or train from all over America and several foreign countries. We provide Transportation Assistance for overnight campers.
