Continuing the pattern of Highline and Bellevue, the Olympia School district is having community meetings with its superintendent finalists this week. I wish our School Board would take note.
Great new summer camp offering through the UW Computer Science & Engineering:
How do computers work? What does it take to write a computer program? How can computing help address challenges in healthcare, water management, education and more? What jobs are available to people with computing skills?
This summer, UW Computer Science & Engineering will answer these questions through a series of 1-week day camps in partnership with Women in Science and Engineering and the Society of Women Engineers. Participants will get hands-on experience in computing and participate in creative projects. Two sessions (July 16 - 20 or July 23 - 27) will be offered for students starting 7th, 8th or 9th grade in fall 2012. One session (August 13-17) will be offered for students starting 10th, 11th or 12th grade in fall 2012. Admission will be limited to 20 participants per session.
