University of Illinois’s WCS ChicTech Retreat


Female high school students are invited to the 2016 ChicTech Retreat sponsored by the University of Illinois’s Women in Computer Science! This two day overnight retreat will be held on November 12th and 13th at the Thomas Siebel Center for Computer Science, which is the building on campus for computer science. This retreat will teach high school students more about computer science, and they will get the chance to work on their very own project that they can showcase at the closing ceremony! Other fun activities include a photo scavenger hunt, a girls movie night, and computer science trivia (with prizes!)

See flyer attached to this email. Registration will close on October 14th, and they will notify the accepted applicants by October 21st. Organizers expect that most girls will be accepted, but they do have to cap the registration at 75 attendees.
