Welcome to the Coalition for American Indians in Computing (CAIC)
The Coalition is a cooperation among American Indian Tribal Communities and the Computing Science
Department of Humboldt State University, with funding support from the National
Science Foundation. Our goal is to increase the numbers of American Indian students who are prepared to
undertake careers in fields related to Computer Science and Information Technology. Parents, teachers,
advisors, students, Tribal Information technology workers, Tribal education directors, Tribal leadership,
HSU faculty and HSU staff participate collaboratively to realize this goal.
Any self-identified Native American or Alaskan Native high school sophomore or junior is eligible to apply
for participation in CAIC's 2010 Summer College Seminar, July 12-24. The free camp combines the real-life experience
of living in HSU's college residence halls with classes and projects in a variety of cultural, mathematical and real-life creative technical areas using computers,
along with fun social activities and field trips to native and tourist sights in the local area. Successful completion of Algebra
before the camp commences is required. GPAs of 2.5 are preferred, but not required.
