OCWiC workshop

March 4th, 2009

On February 27-28, the 3rd Ohio Celebration of Women in Computing (OCWiC – pronounced “Oh-quick”) was held in the Mohican Resort and Conference Center.  Thanks to a generous donation from Susanne Hambrusch (from Purdue University) the department was able to send 2 students to attend.  As you can see below, Emma Anderson ’09 and Elara Willett ’10 had a great time.

OCWiC brings together women majoring in computer science and related fields together with women teaching or working in computing careers.  It is an opportunity for the community to get to know each other, meet possible mentors, and encourage young women in computer science to complete their studies and explore possible career paths by meeting women leaders from business, industry, and academia.
