WISP in the News

Greetings of the season! 

If you're looking for inspiration, check out this video of the Dartmouth Undergraduate Journal of Science (DUJS) STEM Panel, which was facilitated by Computer Science Professor Hany Farid and included WISP members Lauren Salgueiro '15 and Kim Strauch '16 as panelists.  In addition, check out the new DUJS STEM guide, designed to help all Dartmouth science students succeed.

As an engineering student and co-coordinator of the Peer Mentor Program within Dartmouth’s Women in Science Project (WISP), Julie Ann Haldeman ’14 was excited to help WISP pair first-year female students with upper-class female mentors of similar academic interests. After all, she had the same done for her three years ago. “Serving as a peer mentor is one small way of paying it forward to future classes of female engineers,” says Haldeman, who shares her duties with Lauren Salgueiro ’15. “I stay involved in WISP since I feel it’s important to help build a strong community of women in the sciences.” - See more at: http://engineering.dartmouth.edu/magazine/wisp-leading-women-into-engineering#sthash.vHDTe7h1.dpuf

Accidental Entrepreneurs
Posted on October 6, 2014

This story was originally published in the Dartmouth College Fund's fall 2014 issue of From the GREEN.
Engineering majors Krystyna Miles '16 of North Salem, N.Y., and Shinri Kamei '16, of Tokyo, Japan, met in "ENGS 21: Introduction to Engineering," when they were charged with designing a solution to a mobility problem. Their team developed an ergonomic serving tray that won the Jackson Engineering Prize and the 2014 Dartmouth Ventures entrepreneurship competition. Miles and Kamei recently founded Tray Bien, a new venture to manufacture and distribute the tray to the food service industry. From the GREEN spoke with Miles and Kamei about Tray Bien

Hour of Code to Feature 'Frozen' Characters
The Washington Post (11/19/14) Lyndsey Layton

Educational nonprofit Code.org this year is collaborating with Disney to open its week-long "Hour of Code" event during Computer Science Education Week, which takes place Dec. 8-14. This year's hour-long coding tutorial will feature the lead female characters from Disney's animated film "Frozen." Hour of Code is an online event that features hour-long coding tutorials tailored for difference grade levels, from kindergarten to high school, and lectures from technology industry leaders... This year's "Frozen" tutorials will feature the film's princesses, Anna and Elsa, and ask students to use a drag-and-drop interface to create commands that move the characters around on the ice and draw snowflakes, snowmen, and fractals. This year's event will focus on getting girls interested in computer science and will feature lectures from female tech leaders, including Polyvore CEO Jess Lee, Microsoft engineer Paola Mejia, and app developer Lyndsey Scott. Code.org founder Hadi Partovi says helping to increase female participation in computer science is one of the organization's chief goals.

A fast-growing tech field that welcomes women
Forbes Magazine (11/12/14)  Anne Fisher

About half of those working in data privacy are female, and they often earn more than their male peers. As business and government keep gathering staggering amounts of data and putting it to work, devising ways to protect it from hackers is a bigger, more complicated headache with every passing day.

Made with Code: Inspiring the next generation of girl coders

Internet giant Google is seeking to teach computer programming to millions of girls in the US under its Made with Code initiative, which has an eye on developing women programmers in the Silicon Valley.
