Gator Computing Program

The Gator Computing Program is for high school students entering 10th and 11th grade, and offers an incredible opportunity to learn from UF’s preeminent research facilities. During this two-week program, student participants have the chance to discover and explore several scientific applications and environments – including tours of campus laboratories – and use what they learn to tackle real world problems as part of a project team.
