UCSD EnABLEs Students to Better Understand and Experience These Careers Before College
The UCSD San Diego Supercomputer Center is partnering with two undergraduate campus organizations, the Society of Women Engineers (SWE) and Women in Computing (WIC), to provide a unique mentoring experience for students in grades 10-12 called ABLE (Anita Borg Leadership and Engagement program). The program’s mission is to engage young women in the fields of computer science and engineering through workshops, campus and community events, corporate visits and undergraduate mentor matches. By providing a first hand look into these two areas of interest and highlighting a variety of career opportunities in an encouraging and supportive environment, it is our hope that these young women continue on to pursue careers in STEM fields.
