Claremont Graduate University teams with Scripps College to establish a pipeline project that encompasses high school, undergraduate and graduate students who will interact and collaborate during four workshops. The first two workshops focus on the undergraduate-graduate connection, while the last two workshops focus on the high school-undergraduate connection. The groups work with their respective younger group on appropriate but exciting and student-selected and student-led projects. As part of these interactions, each group is trained to and has the opportunity to mentor, encourage and support the younger group to start or continue to pursue a career in computing technology.
Workshop 1: Overview and Introduction to Computing: Careers and Projects Examples
Workshop 2: Leadership Skills for Women in IT
