Given the nature of LACC program requiring laboratory and graduate student resources, we are able to accept only a limited number of participants. To be considered for participation in LACC, you should be in 10th, 11th, or 12th grades (or will be entering these grades the next Fall), have a GPA of at least 3.0, and have an excellent record in science and mathematics. LACC challenges students beyond what most high schools offer and is not a remedial program. Applicants should have a strong interest in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM), particularly computing, in order to benefit from LACC. Some prior experience in programming and/or electronics is beneficial but is not required.
The program is open to all eligible students. We especially encourage participation by students from LAUSD schools, female students, and ethnicities that are under-represented in STEM.
We do not charge any fees from program participants, but we are also unable to provide financial assistance for travel, lodging, and other personal costs that you may incur for participation in LACC.
The 2016 LACC program will be four weeks long, consisting of eight modules. The program is scheduled to take place from July 11, 2016 to August 4, 2016, with detailed calendar to-be-determined. Activities will take place four days per week. Applications are closed.
