Computer Science Summer Programs

Are there any good (free and paid) summer programs that would be good for an aspiring computer science major to do? I am currently a sophomore.

For myself, I am currently doing CS tutoring for mostly elementary school and middle scholars at my local coding school. This may not increase your experience and knowledge with Computer Science but I think it's a great experience for teaching, communication, etc. It should also look well on college aps

You can try these:

- Anson L Clark Scholars Program and pick a research field of your choice.

- MIT RSI and pick a research field of your choice

- SIP by USCS (remote)

Take a look at some of these:

I think, most importantly though, improve your own skills through programming projects whether applying them to apps on Xcode or Android Studio or games on Unity and Unreal Engine. I believe you should familiarize yourself with applications of computer science so you can be a good competitor for these programs. Best of luck!

if you're looking for a formal program it would depend on your location (there are few paid remote options). if you live near a city/university you could try cold emailing to get an internship.
