YWiC summer camps are part of a research project to increase female interest and participation in computing. The camp is for students who self-identify as females, genderqueer, or non-binary in high school, rising into 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th grades and will include a stipend ($200) and an opportunity to win technology prizes, plus swag (bags, notepads, pens, etc.). Participants utilize computational thinking through a variety of interactive software tools. These tools show students that computer science is a fun, creative, engaging, and rewarding field and they are more than capable of learning these skills!
