On October 11th, 60 middle school and high school counselors joined UW CSE to learn about computing as part of the National Center for Women & Information Technology’s Counselors for Computing program. Counselors heard from faculty and industry professionals, participated in hands-on activities, and mingled with their university counterparts.
The organizers were Jane Krauss from NCWIT, Hélène Martin from UW CSE, and Chris Kelly from WSCA.
