We Hack Too is an 8-day virtual hackathon that includes a FREE 1-day launch event inside select Microsoft stores. The 1-day event is a Business Development & Design Incubator where girls ages 8~13 attend coding and gaming workshops. In addition, high school and college level women collaborate with professional mentors to design products and develop business strategies.
Scholarship deadline: June 12
This is a scholarship to celebrate women in computer science. It is named after Ada Lovelace, who wrote the first computer program. She was history's first computer programmer. The computer programming language "Ada" was named in her honor.
Robot Springboard Technology Camp is a one-week camp for middle school girls covering robotics, computing, brainstorming, and leadership skills. During the camp, attendees will work with the LEGO MINDSTORMS Robotics kits and the NXT software language, learning to utilize digital and analog sensors. At lunchtime, they will meet and speak with women working in technology fields at Drexel University and in the greater Philadelphia area. Daily "groupthink" and brainstorming exercises will develop leadership skills.
Join us for a unique hackathon organized by students for students encouraging both prototyping tools and code! We want to get Santa Cruz students excited about coding and technology so that they can help shape the future. There'll be prizes, swag, and awesome speakers and mentors. No previous experience necessary.
We are also looking for college students to volunteer. Volunteers will have the opportunity to connect with great companies such as Hyperloop One and Looker!
ThoughtSTEM is excited to announce its partnership with Dev Bootcamp San Diego to empower students from groups that are regularly under-represented in the field of computer science by offering diversity scholarships for coding summer camps. Diversity scholarships will enable local students to attend ThoughtSTEM's week-long coding summer camps at UCSD Extension. Applications are due by July 1st.

Texas State University and Dripping Springs High School worked together last year on an IEEE funded STEM project that included university professors advising high school teachers and curriculum content for multi-disciplinary STEM courses for high school boys and girls. It included outreach to the high school girls robotic club.

This is the third year that we are trying to pull off a summer camp to boost interest in computer science and technology. We received some funding from a local none for profit organization. In the past two years, our university provided some matching funds so that the camp could be offered essentially free for the students. However, the funds from the university is no longer available and we would like to get some support from NCWIT to get this project going. The target audience of this camp is 47-18 year old, from higher middle school to high school grades.
