Last week, 56 middle school girls took a week-long crash course in coding as part of a program developed by Penn sophomore Kate Miller.
The program, part of Penn’s Girls in Engineering, Math and Science Camp (GEMS), was the first of its kind for the summer camp, which offers sessions in topics like robotics, animation and nanotech.
Miller, a bioengineering major, developed the program when she was a high school student in Columbus, Ohio, according to a release. Last spring, she won a $5,000 AspireIT grant from the National Center for Women and Information Technology to bring the program to Penn.
