Texas Women In Computing Summer Camp (TWiC)
Middle school studnets
The Texas Women in Computing (TWiC) Summer Camp will introduce middle school students to advanced and interesting computer science concepts. During the week students will work on hands-on activities that will bolster their interest in computing and advance their knowledge to a level that utilizes critical thinking when encountering complex computer science concepts in high school or college The main goal of the TWiC Summer Camp is to increase the participation of women in STEM courses, particularly computer science. Other goals include:
- Promote engagement of girls/women in computing from middle school to high school to early college
- Provide an environment for students to focus on building computational thinking skills.
- Strengthen the preparation of girls/young women for future endeavors in computing by developing their mastery of computer science concepts and practices, while raising their aspirations in computing.
Students will learn core computing concepts and competencies such as computers and communication devices, computational thinking, data, algorithms, computer programming, and teamwork. All concepts will be covered in depth, analyzed within student teams, and used to implement problem solutions over the span of the week.
The Texas Women in Computing Summer Camp is made possible by a grant from Alcoa Foundation.
Camp dates: June 14-18 Summer 2021
