Description:
Young Women in Computing provides a fresh and fun way to introduce Computer Science to people of all ages through informal education opportunities. By providing summer camps, afterschool programming, team competitions, conferences, and more (!!), YWiC brings performance and outcome potential in computing to thousands of participants. Through the instruction of software platforms, students, teachers, parents, and professionals are exposed to new applications and integration ideas with animation, computational thinking, simulations, and more. Pronounced "Y-wick", this fantastic program grew through the passion and commitment of undergraduate near-peers who serve as the mentors and connectors to Computer Science. The expansion of YWiC into a multidimensional outreach program directly impacted not only the city of Las Cruces, but also STEM advocates and participants throughout the state.
