Hello,

 

It’s that time again! Stanford Girls Teaching Girls to Code's annual Code Camp event is happening on Saturday, April 21, 2018, and applications are now open!

 

Code Camp is our main event, with hundreds of girls attending every year. We’re looking for female students who have little or zero exposure to computer science. All that is required is an open and curious mind, and a willingness to learn.

 

Here are some of the things students will get to do:

  • Explore different topics of their preference, such as web development, artificial intelligence, and computational biology. All are taught at a hands-on introductory level. Check out the track descriptions here.

  • Eat lunch and hang out for a day with Stanford students. Many of us come from a variety of STEM and non-STEM backgrounds and learned about computer science in much the same way --- curiosity! We certainly didn’t know we liked it until we’ve tried. This is a great opportunity to talk to us about the exciting mix of projects we work on using computer science, combining interests in education, art, health, and more.

  • Walk away with cool projects to show others and to continue working on beyond our camp! Examples include building a personal website and mobile app.

 

Applications close Friday, March 30th, at 11:59 PM, and will be processed on a rolling basis. We look forward to having yet another great turnout this year!

 

Cheers,

Girls Teaching Girls To Code

Stanford University

Students will work in randomly assigned teams of four to solve brain teasers, crack mysterious codes, and exercise their leadership skills. The puzzles, written by the GTGTC mentors, are all related to concepts in Computer Science and will help students practice the kind of critical thinking that is often used in programming and CS.

Did binge-re-watching "The Walking Dead" get you thinking about what you’d do if the streets were filled with flesh-eating zombies? Maybe you've envisioned your own post-apocalyptic world overrun with the living dead, forcing you to come up with a zombie survival plan — and quick!

Hone your survival tactics and imagine what your school or college campus might be like in a zombie apocalypse. Our Zombie Apocalypse Scholarship committee wants to know your plan to avoid the zombies, where you’d hide, and the top-five things you’d bring to stay alive.

We're giving one successful survivor $2,000 towards his or her college education. Do you think you have what it takes to make the cut?

 

Applicants must:

  • Be thirteen (13) years of age or older at the time of application
  • Be legal residents of the fifty (50) United States or the District of Columbia
  • Be currently enrolled (or enroll no later than the fall of 2023) in an accredited post-secondary institution of higher education

Award Amount: $2,000

 

Submit an online written response to the question:
"Imagine that your high school or college has been overrun with zombies. Your math professor, the cafeteria ladies, and even your best friend have all joined the walking dead. Flesh out a plan to avoid the zombies, including where you’d hide and the top-five things you’d bring to stay alive." (250 words or less)

 

Deadline for application: October 31, 2017

 

The Zombie Apocalypse Scholarship winner will be notified by email or phone on or around January 31, 2018.

CONFERENCE DATES AND LOCATION:

DATE: March 22-25, 2018

LOCATION: Sacramento, CA

APPLICATION DEADLINE: October 25, 2017

 

BACKGROUND:

The annual Asian Pacific Youth Leadership Project (APYLP) conference provides a select group of 50 Asian and Pacific Islander seniors and juniors from public, private and charter high schools throughout California with a unique opportunity to gain first-hand knowledge of the legislative process, community leadership, and political activism. During the four-day, three-night conference, students will participate in a Mock Legislature at the State Capitol that includes the election of peer legislative leaders, lively debate of current issues through the introduction of legislation, and the lobbying of bills during the committee hearings and the Senate floor session. Additionally, small group workshops facilitated by Asian Pacific legislative staff, community activists, and business leaders will assist students in developing their leadership and public speaking skills, enhance their cultural awareness and identity, and explore the richness and diversity of Asian and Pacific Islander communities in California. 

 

WHO SHOULD APPLY: California junior or senior high school Asian and Pacific Islander youth who have some leadership experience and especially from students who show leadership potential, but whose participation in programs such as APYLP may have been hindered in the past by economic, geographic, language, or other factors. The conference program is designed specifically for Asian and Pacific Islander youth to learn more about themselves, issues of importance to their communities, and how to empower their leadership potential through the political process, public service and community service.

  • Have working knowledge of Python or Java
  • Be able to commit to 20 hours per week over the summer

  • Description of their programming abilities
