If someone don't mind, can you take a few minutes of your time to research Inspirit AI or HS Navigator Young Scholars Programs is better in terms of benefit for a CS or computer engineering major.
Time is no problem for either.
Inspirit AI, however, costs $900 which I don't mind if it's worth that money.
I have been accepted into both programs as well.
I researched both programs and they both seem great! I think that the HS Navigator Young Scholars Programs covers more topics while Inspirit AI is more focused on AI and CompSci related topics. However, I do think that Inspirit AI seems worth the money because of the smaller class sizes and the mentorship that you're receiving with the program.
On the other hand, if you're weighing in the factor of these programs on your college resume, the HS Navigator Young Scholars Program would look better because it's a free program with a resume instead of a paid program (it seems like it's more work/more impressive to get into a free program than a paid program on a college app).
It's honestly up to you and your goals with these programs. If your goal is to get the most diverse experience and to help boost your college app, then I would recommend the HS Navigator Young scholars Program. If your goal is to get a more in-depth experience with alumni from prestigious schools, then I would recommend the Inspirit AI.
Hope that this helps you, and congrats on getting into both programs!
I recommend choosing the HS Navigator Young Scholars Program. The program will stand out more because it involves more practical learning about a wider variety of CS topics. The fact that it is free gives it an edge as well. Beyond the college admissions process, HS Navigator may benefit you more personally because of its focus on career prep. Hope this helps!
Hi! I honestly don't know much about the pricing, but MIT has a ton of really interesting summer programs depending on what your interests are. Here is a link:
