Notable Women in Computing Card Deck Featuring Manuela Veloso

Notable Women in Computing Card Deck, which started as a Kickstarter project, features 54 notable women in computer science. The women in the card deck were selected after receiving multiple, high-level awards from more than one institution. The deck seeks to portray the true diversity of women in computing both current and historical, showcasing professionals from a variety of nations, backgrounds, gender identities, orientations, and abilities. Among those chosen to be featured is CMU's very own Manuela Veloso, a Herbert A. Simon University Professor of Computer Science and an IEEE and AAAS Fellow.

Upcoming Outreach Roadshows

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. The Roadshow Team will visit Pittsburgh Environmental Charter School to present to 23 students from 4th-6th grade and Streams Elementary School to present to 207 students in grades 3 and 4 on Feb. 26th and 27th respectively.
