Special Focus: Women in STEM

SSIP is a collaborative project aimed at engaging women of all backgrounds, particularly those underrepresented in engineering and computer science. Experiences will include community engagement with women from Gonzaga University partners, faculty and students.

Participants should have a strong understanding of high school math and science, but prior experience with engineering and computer science is not expected.

Activities will include:

  • Daily projects in engineering and computer science
  • Creative time with makerspace tools
  • A team challenge - make progress every day on a fun project that practices what you learn
  • Mealtime conversations with professional engineers and computer scientists - networking and mentoring!
  • Tours and activities in professional engineering/computer science facilities
  • Recreational activities
