I2C3 aims to address the gender gap that exists within computing by providing professional growth opportunities for young women. We strive to promote an environment within RIT that will attract more women to participate in computing and retain first and second year female college students in computing.
Students and educators work hand-in-hand to build the community through a repertoire of activities and workshops. The project creates interactive modules for high school classrooms and introduces students and secondary school educators to these modules through summer and year round workshops. In addition, computing students design, build, and use creative tools to teach computing to high school students in classrooms. The project has inclusive participation in research labs, cooperative education opportunities, student mentoring, and connected community activities. Online resources will be provided to students and educators to support the interactive nature of this project.
