Program Dates & Times

The program will run from 02/01/2021 to 03/24/2024. We will have three different sessions: Session A on Mondays, Session B on Tuesdays, and Session C on Wednesdays. Students can sign up for any of these three sessions, and if for some reason they need to miss a class, they can make up that class by taking it with a different session. For example, if a student misses a Session A class, they can take the Session C class later that week.

More About the Program

This 8-week virtual session will introduce students to the principles of computer science using the Java and Processing languages. As a final project, students will create a project about an environmental or social issue of their choosing. Students will also hear personal stories from women pursuing STEM in higher education, and learn more about women working as STEM professionals.
