Leap@CMU (formerly Andrew's Leap)

Mary Widom
Leap@CMU (formerly Andrew's Leap) is a summer enrichment program run by the Carnegie Mellon University School of Computer Science. All local area high school students are encouraged to apply (and occasional middle school students). Through special classes and guest faculty seminars, students will be exposed to the frontiers of computer science. They will "leap" ahead approximately ten years. Students will have an opportunity to interact with some of the country's leading scientists, and will emerge from the program with a vivid overview of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon. Leap@CMU has been run every summer since 1991. Leap is not for academic credit. We do not evaluate or grade the participants. We want students who want to do it for the fun of it.
