NCWIT AspireIT – a component of the NCWIT Aspirations in Computing program – is a national initiative to increase girls' access to meaningful, inclusive computer science education during the middle school years. AspireIT dramatically widens the pool of middle school girls entering high school with computing experience, creates a community of peers engaged in technology exploration, fosters mentoring relationships with technical professionals, and increases girls' confidence in their technical abilities. Simultaneously, AspireIT supports high school and college women's persistence in computing by creating teaching and leadership opportunities.
