Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology

The CS group for women called "gEECS" i.e. girls in Electrical Engineering, Computer Engineering, Computer Science and Software Engineering meets three to four times a term and gives the women an opportunity to get to know each other and plan outreach activities with middle and high school girls. Along with DePauw University and Indiana University at Bloomington, they are organizing INWIC 2008 (Indiana Women in Computing). This is a conference for women in computer science programs in Indiana and is a great opportunity for their students to network with other young women in the field and share their ideas. Their faculty teaches two-day workshops for high school Computer Science teachers in Indiana, to help them prepare their students for the CS Advanced Placement exams.
