CLEMSON COMPUTING INCLUSION AND IDENTITY PROGRAM
Are you an undergraduate with an interest in computing and technology? Would you like to learn more about research, prototyping, and design?
The Clemson Computing Inclusion and Identity Program (CCII) in partnership with the International Society of Blacks in Computing (ISBIC) and Google ExploreCSR is leading a five-part workshop series that will introduce participants to a different side of computing.
Each 2.5-hour workshop will begin with a talk by a leading minority computer scientist, or researcher who works with underserved groups, who will discuss their research (e.g., AI, accessibility, automotive, etc.) as well as their journey to and through graduate school.
Students will then learn how to design, prototype, and evaluate an assistive technology.
Student participants will receive a $50 gift card for each workshop attended ($250 total), swag (e.g., t-shirt, water bottle, etc.), access to prototyping materials, and a free 1-year membership to the International Society of Blacks in Computing.
The CCII workshops are open to all but given that our goal is to encourage underrepresented groups to pursue STEM education and careers, we are especially interested in the participation of Black, Latinx, LGBTQ, and other underrepresented groups.
Space is limited so please reach out to email@example.com for additional information and scheduling.
Workshops will be led by Dr. Julian Brinkley and the DRIVELab research team.
