Our Initiatives

We teach middle school students. We go to schools and teach middle school students using Scratch, Java, and Finch Robot. We also teach them HTML and CSS to build a simple website for themselves.

We also do Field Trips & Girl Scouts. Middle school girls come to Rutgers to see resources available for women in computing. They get to try tools in our MakerSpace and build Lego Mindstorms as a part of their trip.

We are also part of every year's HackHers organized by WiCS. It is a 24-hour non-stop hackathon (geared for women) at Rutgers University sponsored by 10 big companies including Microsoft, AT&T, Bloomberg, Goldman Sachs, etc.. This event helps college women to learn different programming tools by attending workshops in hackathon and submit their programming project for hackathon.
