UC Santa Cruz Girls In Engineering Program
UCSC Girls in Engineering announced their 2020 program. 7th- and 8th-grade girls, primarily from low-income families in Santa Cruz and Monterey Counties, are invited to attend a full week of hands-on workshops at Baskin Engineering...for free. In these workshops, the girls create their very own robots, imagine themselves as computer scientists and engineers, and explore the careers and educational opportunities available to them in STEM fields. There are 25 students per weeklong cohort. And this is where they could use support. Each week-long cohort costs $25,000 (travel, meals, and materials are provided at no cost to the girls' families, removing barriers to participation). And UCSC would like to offer 10 cohorts during the summer of 2020. And get this: a gift of $25K would be matched by the Peggy and Jack Baskin Foundation. Interested? Go to UCSC Girls in Engineering.
