Children with disabilities and from varied cultural backgrounds are encouraged to enroll in this summer program. The purpose of this program is to help children learn about computers and the Internet, how to browse, navigate and search the World Wide Web (WWW), how to use the Microsoft Office 2003 suite applications (Word, Excel, Power Point), how to design and publish a personal Web page using Microsoft FrontPage 2003, and how to program computers using cutting edge educational technology interactive applications such as Alice (http://www.alice.org) and Lego Mindstorms  (http://mindstorms.lego.com/eng/default.aspx).

The Computer Literacy Academy is held between June 1st and June 29th, on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons from 3:15 p.m. to 5:15 p.m. in the Computer Science and Software Engineering Personal Computers Lab, Shop Building 101.  The program is taught by Auburn University senior graduate students supervised by two AU faculty members, Dr. Daniela Marghitu (daniela@eng.auburn.edu) and Mrs. Elizabeth Zylla-Jones (zyllael@auburn.edu).  For any general question about the program, contact Dr. Daniela Marghitu and, for any question about children with special needs, contact Mrs. Elizabeth Zylla-Jones.
