Our annual ChicTech retreat is part of WCS’s outreach effort to inspire girls to pursue an education in computer science! This retreat invites about seventy high schoolers to stay overnight on campus and get a taste of the different opportunities in computer science, with no prior experience needed! Over the course of the retreat, each participant will attend fun computer science workshops. The students will also get to attend a talk from a UIUC professor and participate in a Q&A with current undergraduate students. Our goal for the retreat is for the students to understand that Computer Science is for everyone, and to leave the retreat with a new perspective on the field.
Applications for ChicTech 2019 are closed.
