Hello World's summer programs will be one-week intensive courses held at tech spaces in downtown Austin. Each program will run Monday-Friday, with a shortened showcase event on Saturday.


Software Engineering

June 19th-June 24th 9am-5pm @ Hack Reactor in Downtown Austin

Section A: Ages 8-10 years; Section B: Ages 11-13 years; Section C: Ages 14-17 years

Tuition: $1149

Expand Course Details

Students develop a foundation in programming fundamentals centered on full stack web development, including conquering key concepts in object-oriented programming. Coursework entails basic building blocks of how the web is rendered and the development of well-structured HTML and CSS, as well as using SASS to create efficient and organized front-ends. All students will learn the basics of JavaScript syntax and how it dynamically interacts with HTML as well as jQuery, the most popular JavaScript Library, to develop an understanding of how to collect user input and manipulate web objects.

Hello World Studio | Software Engineering | Summer Camp Students develop a foundation in programming fundamentals centered on full stack web development, including conquering key concepts in object-oriented programming. Coursework entails basic building blocks of how the web is rendered and the development of well-structured HTML and CSS, as well as using SASS to create efficient and organized front-ends. All students will learn the basics of JavaScript syntax and how it dynamically interacts with HTML as well as jQuery, the most popular JavaScript Library, to develop an understanding of how to collect user input and manipulate web objects. Experienced and older students will gain exposure to APIs (Application Programming Interfaces), be introduced to database modeling and ORM (Object Relational Mapping), and conceptually understand the MVC (Model View Controller) Framework. Students will learn how to become masters of failure as they embrace error messages as clues and gain a fundamental appreciation for failure as the only way to learn and progress. Sessions are taught using passive test-driven development, allowing students to gain a real-world programming experience while giving instructors on the ability to evaluate and assist in real time.

Students experience personalized learning with a maximum of 8 students per instructor. Our instructors are software engineers and computer scientist who are currently leading professionals in the technology industry. Students will be grouped by level of experience and age – we are open to all levels and will differentiate based on previous exposure to engineering concepts, with the ultimate aim of laying the foundation for successful careers in tomorrow’s technology-driven world and building skills and confidence in STEM subjects. We would also like to strongly encourage girls to join the program - early exposure to computer science and engineering concepts improves confidence in the field and significantly increases students' likelihood of majoring in these subjects in college!

Sessions take place from 9am-5pm at Hack Reactor professional programming space in downtown Austin. Saturday is a shortened showcase event where students show off to families and friends what they’ve learned throughout the week. Students are welcome to bring their own laptops or can use one provided by Hello World. Please note food is not included and students should pack a lunch and snack for each day.

Artificial Intelligence & Self-Driving Cars

June 26th-July 1st 9am-5pm @ Capital Factory in Downtown Austin

Section A: Ages 7-10 years; Section B: Ages 11-13 years; Section C: Ages 14-16 years

Tuition: $1059

Expand Course Details

This course will integrate a range of topics at the nexus of AI and self-driving cars, including data science, machine learning, engineered self-learning, and the highly anticipated revolution of self-driving cars. Students will be introduced to the complexities of the growing and often nebulous artificial intelligence field and its reliance on big data and data modeling. Coursework includes a conceptual introduction to the ideas behind turning data into actionable knowledge as well as a practical introduction to the tools used to do this. Students will learn to code in Python and R languages and completing common tasks performed by data scientists such as model prediction, decision trees, feature creation, and evaluation.

Game Engineering & Design

July 17th-July 22nd 9am-5pm @ Capital Factory in Downtown Austin

Section A: Ages 7-10 years; Section B: Ages 11-13 years; Section C: Ages 14-17 years

Tuition: $1059

Expand Course Details

This course introduces students to the complex and interconnected components of game development including program design, algorithms in game theory, and game-specific systems and networks. Students will be introduced to the creative power of game design languages including C# and Java, and compare their language syntax. The bulk of programming will be completed in Java, where students will learn to construct basic game loops, classes, and routines, create separate events using logic algorithms, and preview example game environments and deconstruct how Java is used to create gaming levels and multi-variable challenges.

The course will close out with a capstone project where students will individually create a basic Java/C++ project with separate events, routines, and a basic game loop, examine gaming layers and game-level architecture blueprints that enables AI learning within the game’s design. Students will also define the emotional problem their game solves and choose concepts, rules, and requirements for multiple players. Our ultimate aim is to foster within students creative, analytical, problem-solving, and communication skills as well and build technical skill through coding in C, C++, and Java languages.
