A Neligh-Oakdale senior will get a rare opportunity this summer as he spends three weeks beside Google engineers in Seattle.
Bryce Frey, son of Brian and Leann Frey, was selected for the three-week, all expense paid camp at Google's Seattle Campus titled Google CSSI (Computer Science Summer Institute). It takes place from July 10-30 and is only available to a select number of graduated high school seniors planning on studying computer science in college.
"I'm thrilled to spend three weeks at one of the biggest technology companies in the world with peers who are just as interested as I am in technology," Frey said.
According to Google, the camp is an intensive, interactive, hands-on and fun program that seeks to inspire the tech leaders and innovators of tomorrow by supporting the study of computer science, software engineering and other closely related subjects.
CSSI students will learn programming fundamentals directly from Google engineers, get an inside look at some of Google's most exciting, emerging technologies and even design and develop applications with fellow participants.
Frey, who will graduate from Neligh-Oakdale next month, has not selected a college yet. He is currently visiting Ivy League colleges on the East Coast and plans to make his selection soon.
