New York University Women in Computing (WinC), Google, and Princeton University Graduate Women in Science and Engineering (GWISE) invites young women in 9th and 10th grade to the 10th 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.
Computer science, or engineering education opens doors to careers in many areas, including: scientific research, finance, communication, management consulting, environmental engineering, technology development in the developing world, music, animation, movie industry, journalism, health, biotechnology, architecture, and even law.
