This is the first time that Google is collaborating with SUTD to run its Google Computer Science Summer Institute Extension (CSSIx) Program outside of USA! The SUTD-Google CSSIx aimed to introduce computer science to high school students with a passion for technology, including those with or without prior computing or programming background. The program is comprised of two weeks of intensive, interactive, hands-on and fun programme at SUTD’s campus and Google’s Singapore office, and a project week*

During the CSSIx program, students had the chance to interact with and learned from Google CSSI instructors and teaching assistants from the USA, as well as SUTD’s faculty Dr Oka Kurniawan and Dr Norman Lee from ISTD who have worked directly with Google to customise the program.
