NYU's WinC & Princeton's GWISE New York City Girls Computer Science and Engineering Conference 2011
invite you to
The annual New York City Girls Computer Science
Date: Thursday, April 7th, 2011
8:30 am - 4:00 PM
View picture's from the 2011 NYC girls computer science and Engineering conference:
The event was a big sucess! 200 GIRLS, 20 TEACHERS FROM 21 NYC schools participated in our event). Also, we had about 50 volunteers from NYU, Princeton and 20 Googlers. We had 35 TA's to teach the girls to program mobile applications. The girls were all excited to build the apps. All of the 40 teams finished thier apps on time. They also pitched the idea to the entire group. We had 10 winning teams who hacked and built very cool apps!
The 2012 date for this event is already set! The event will be held on May 4th, 2012. So, SAVE the date and hope that you will join us!
Thanks to Google and NYU's Courant Institute of Mathematical Sciences for funding this annual event!
New York University Women in Computing (WinC) and Princeton University Graduate Women in Science and Engineering (GWISE) invites young women in 9th and 10th grade to the fourth annual New York City Girls Computer Science and Engineering Conference. The program will give young women a taste of the tremendous creativity and innovation involved in computer science and engineering or science career, and show young women how these fields can help change the world.
The event will include talks by women computer science and engineering professors, graduate and undergraduate students, demos of exciting on-going research projects in computer science and engineering at Princeton and NYU, and an engineering design competition where girls will be challenged to construct structurally-sound towers using only spaghetti sticks and gumdrops. We will also the discuss the prerequisites required from obtaining an education in computer science and engineering, as well as the undergraduate computer and science engineering experience. The goal of the program is to show young women that an education in computer science and engineering is both an attainable and rewarding goal.
An computer science, or engineering education opens doors to careers in many areas, including: scientific research, finance, communication, management consulting, environmental engineering, third-world aid and development, biotechnology, architecture, and even law.
