Women in Computer Science


Description:


WiCS or Women in Computer Science is a place for women interested in computer science to find support and guidance, and to grow as new and active members in Penn's the science and technology community. By networking with Penn faculty and other tech companies like Google and Facebook, WiCS equips students with skills necessary to succeed and excel. WiCS organizes regular fieldtrips to different places such as Google's Headquarters, the annual Maker Faire in New York, and the Philadelphia Game Lab. Closer to home, WiCS members participate in hackathons, hold weekly code nights, and organize programming tutorials and workshops for media design. Every year, students also plan an outreach program called InspiHer to empower girls in Philadelphia to pursue a career in tech. As a community, WiCS encourages and facilitates peer-to-peer learning, long-lasting friendships, and collaboration on research projects within and outside of the Penn community.
