Computer Science for Girls

summer-stem-academy-logo

The Integrated Science Multi-use Laboratory (ISMuL) located in UPR Arecibo, looks to improve the quality of teaching strategies in Sciences and Mathematics with the goal of attracting more North region students to the Science, Engineering, Mathematics and Technology careers.
With sponsorship from NASA P.R.S.G.C, we offer the community a new summer academy for girls with ages between 12 and 16 that are interested in experimenting basic concepts in Computer Science and being a future professional in computing areas.
Given the high demand and almost non-existent in the computing world, this Academy will pleasantly, and in a fun way, allow them to use tools and acquire abilities generally inaccessible during the learning process.

Activities:

  • Conferences and workshops about jobs that professionals do in the Computer Science world.
  • Interaction with college students and professionals experienced in science computations, who will share their experiences and serve as models.
  • Individual and team work with other participants to create your own 3D animation.
  • Individual and team work with other participants to create a robot and a program to solve a given problem.
  • Using UPRA facilities and particularly those of ISMuL.
  • Share with girls who have an affinity for computers.

Objectives

  • Provide practical and basic experiences of Computer Science.
  • Encourage talented students to consider careers in computing, particularly sciences in computing.
  • Learn and share with your possible future fellow students and maintain contact for future activities.
