Outreach Roadshow

On Friday, Oct. 24th, W@SCS will be doing a Roadshow at North Hills Middle School. The SCS Outreach Roadshow introduces children, teachers, and parents to the many areas within computer science. This is a highly interactive presentation by undergrads and grads who talk about why/how they began studying the area, their current experiences, what CS means to them now, and their future hopes and expectations.

Grace Hopper Conference

The 2014 Grace Hopper Conference (GHC), the world's largest technical conference for women in computing, took place October 8-10, in Phoenix, Arizona. Every two years, Women@SCS members go to the conference as a large group. Take a look at some of the photos that our students took at the conference!

Faculty Panel

All are invited to a faculty panel held by the Grad Sisters Program on Tuesday, Oct. 28th from 4:30-6pm in GHC 4405. Faculty members will talk about their research and explain the open problems in their fields. It will be useful to undergrads trying to decide what fields to apply to grad school in (or if they want to), and for graduates to see how broad computer science is as well as what is the cutting edge in each field.
