NACOGDOCHES, Texas — Representatives from BPX Energy recently presented a donation to Stephen F. Austin State University’s College of Sciences and Mathematics for the development of the Ladyjacks Who Code camp, launching in the summer of 2019.

Hosted by the college, the STEM Research and Learning Center and the Department of Computer Science, the camp is designed to create engaging experiences for students who have completed sixth or seventh grade, blending both online and “unplugged” experiences.

“Students will learn to create computer programs designed to enhance collaborative learning, develop problem-solving skills and teach persistence through difficult tasks,” said Dr. Kimberly Childs, dean of the College of Sciences and Mathematics.
