Pre-College Students

Recognizing that an undergraduate support program cannot operate in a vacuum, but must build upon the pre-college experience. Women in Science and Engineering Program has developed an active outreach program to secondary schools. Our pre-college programs include the following:

RobotC for Girls

June 23 - 27, 2014
The camp introduces high school students to text based programming including syntax, variables, functions, behaviors and loops. The camp is taught in a fun and supportive environment.

Genes in Diseases and Symptoms (GIDAS) Program
