Girls in grades 9, 10 and 11 from six states were accepted into this scholarship program, part of Michigan Tech’s Summer Youth Programs.
The girls had the chance to experience different areas of computing, including programming, artificial intelligence, robotics, virtual reality, visualization, networks and security.
They also were given the chance to learn about the many career opportunities in computing and the job prospects in a wide range of industries. In addition, they interacted with Michigan Tech alumni and role models to get firsthand accounts of the diverse careers in computing.
The girls also experienced college life by staying in residence halls, eating in university cafeterias and exploring campus life among others with similar interests.
Following classroom and lab experiences during the day, the girls participated in team competitions, a variety show and many outdoor activities.
