Inviting girls to study computer science

"Women in Computer Science: How I became one and why you should be one too." That was the title of the talk that computer science teaching professor Christine Alvarado gave to about100 girls from around San Diego county high school girls May 10 here at the Jacobs School during Girl's Day Out, an event organized by the UC San Diego chapter of Women in Computing.

The girls toured labs here on campus, including the immersive Star Cave, and got to make their own Arduino-powered mood lamps. In addition to Alvarado, they also got to hear from the computer science's department new teaching professor Mia Mannes, and students from WIC @ UCSD.
