IBM Sponsored Summer Program in Computing for High School Women at Michigan Technological University
Do you know any high school women who are interested in computing?
IBM is supporting a weeklong workshop for high school girls at Michigan Tech in Houghton, Michigan, June 24-30. If you know of any young women who are interested in learning more about the field of computing, and who might like to attend this workshop, the deadline is TOMORROW, May 30. Details at http://www.youthprograms.mtu.edu/wics/index.html
For more information, contact Linda Ott (firstname.lastname@example.org) or call (906-487-2209).
I can and will personally vouch for MTU's summer programs for women, since I attended one (eek!) over 25 years ago now. Ugh, I wish I hadn't done that math. Anyhow, it's a great program, so if you know of any women who might benefit from attending, please contact them right away. My recollection is that you pay for your travel to get there, but everything else is covered by a scholarship. This is a great way for young women to learn about the field of computer science, to meet and interact with other young women who might be interested as well, and also to tour the campus to decide if Michigan Tech is right for them. I loved it there, and the program is excellent.
