Middle school girls learn about computing careers at GVSU camp
Posted on August 10, 2012
Area seventh and eighth grade female students learned about the growing fields of information systems and computing at a five-day camp at Grand Valley.
Campers learned how to build electronic robots and create 3-D movies, which were showcased at the Open House on the last day of the camp on Friday, August 10.
“Get with the Program” is part of a continuum of technology-based opportunities for female students interested in engineering and computing careers. The camp took place August 6-10 on the Allendale Campus and included a field trip to area companies that specialize in computing and robotics.
The camp was hosted by the School of Computing and Information Systems at Grand Valley and organized by professors Teresa Peterman and Ana Posada.
