General Information

The Diversity Summit activities for young women are sponsored by the University of North Texas Department of Computer Science and Engineering. The efforts are funded in part by a grant from the National Convergence Technology Center as part of the NSF Advanced Technology Education program.

The Diversity Summit effort is intended to create interest among young women for pursuing education and careers in Computer Science and Information Technology. Our efforts are targeted at smaller school districts, Home School Cooperatives and Community College Transfer students. We invite any young women in Grades 9-12 to participate in these activities.

We are also visiting high schools, community colleges and Home School groups. If you are interested in setting up a visit please contact David Keathly (david.keathly@unt.edu) to schedule a time.

All events are free of charge. For open house events, we welcome parents and siblings as well. The one day camps will expose participants to engaging activities in Game Design, Animation, Robotics and App Development. Campers will also learn about programs at UNt in Computer Science, Engineering and Information Technology. Camps will include lunch and snacks.

Please register for each event you would like to attend and indicate the number of persons in your party (for open house events only) using the Register link provided.
