IT’s a Girl Thing!

Project Description:

NUCIA (Nebraska University Consortium for Information Assurance), within the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) College of Information Science & Technology (IS&T), in conjunction with Girl Scouts, will be offering a week long technology summer day camp to girls, ages 11 to 17 years of age. Each day of the camp will have the girls exploring a different area of technology including potentially such things as: hardware components of a computer, HTML code for web development, other software programming languages, podcasting, and programming of robotics. Additionally, we will introduce the girls to available resources, such as Systers and AnitaB.org, that serve to support women in IT. This request for funding is for updating our teaching tools so that we may provide an enhanced learning experience for the girls.
