On behalf of the Center for Gender Equity in Science and Technology (CGEST) at Arizona State University (ASU), we thank you for attending our COMPUGIRLS One-Day Boot Camp, an event during Computer Science Education Week (CSEdWeek). Our center is committed to providing a culturally responsive computing program for adolescent (ages 13-18) girls from high needs districts. We accomplished this by ensuring that our program was consistent with our empirically-based program, COMPUGIRLS, which offers a culturally responsive computing experience that provides participating girls access and opportunity to acquire the technical and “power” skills –namely, how to present an argument, build a coalition, design solutions to a problem, and further one’s community (Scott, in press)-- necessary for them to enter and persist in STEM.

Up to 100 middle and high school aged girls
CGEST held a COMPUGIRLS One-Day Boot Camp for up to 100 middle and high school aged girls. Participation was on a first-register-first-serve basis. During this 8-hour event, teams of girls worked together to research, design, and build an app prototype that addressed a real problem specific to their communities, while mentors from industry (e.g. State Farm, Intel, Google) and academia (e.g. Arizona State University, Maricopa Community Colleges) provided feedback and support.
