One organization that we support is CS Kickstart. They provide a one-week introductory CS program before fall semester starts for incoming students to UC Berkeley who are curious about computer science and are interested in math, science or engineering. It is an entirely student-run program and includes industry and faculty presentations as well as labs for hands-on activities.
Expanding Your Horizons Network
We also support Expanding Your Horizons, a program to motivate young women into pursuing science and mathematics. Here's a blurb from their website:
Expanding Your Horizons conferences are designed to introduce middle and high school girls to careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics, (STEM). The second annual UC Berkeley EYH conference took place on March 2nd and was attended by 328 girls grades 5-8 representing more than 68 bay area schools.
This conference website has been developed with you in mind. If you are new to EYH, this site will help you explore and learn more about the conference. Returning users feel free to jump ahead and register with the quick links on the right. Also, feel free to check out our Facebook page or follow us on twitter @CalEYH2013.
We will be posting information about our 2014 conference in mid to late fall of 2013. Please check back then for updates! Thank you for your interest in Expanding Your Horizons!
