Computer Science is a rich academic field that seeks to systematically study the processes for solving problems and untangle the complexities in the concrete physical world and the abstract mathematical world. The Summer Computer Science Institute (SCSI) at Carleton focuses on understanding how to think about these processes, how to program computers to implement them, and how to apply computer science ideas to real problems of interest.


Students will be taught by Carleton Professors in three disciplinary areas of Computer Science while focusing their afternoons on one of those core areas as a guided research. The end of the program in a presentation of something they built or the research they conducted and their findings presented to both the academic community at Carleton and to the community.
