UW-Whitewater's CyberGirlz and CyberHigh Tech Camps allow middle and high school-age girls to explore careers in Information Technology (IT) in a college campus environment. Participants will work with a combination of UW-Whitewater students, faculty, and IT professionals to complete activities such as building a digital scrapbook, editing digital video, working with computer hardware and Internet security, building a website, recording a video and podcast, and more.
All of our camps are run by UW-Whitewater faculty and staff, while campers will also work closely with Business Education and IT students. Additionally, UW-Whitewater alumni and IT professionals from companies around the area often participate, ensuring students learn the latest technologies and benefit from meeting working professionals.
Students are grouped by age into either CyberGirlz or CyberHigh Camp, described below.
