The program will be held from July 16-22 on the Wittenberg University campus, where students will stay in residence halls. The theme of Wittenberg’s program is computational science, and classes will be taught by Wittenberg faculty members. Kent State University and OSC in Columbus will also offer the program from July 30–Aug. 5.
YWSI is a weeklong program for Ohio’s middle-school girls. It is designed to promote computer, math and science skills, as well as to provide hands-on learning. The program helps girls develop an interest in these subjects by allowing them to use the latest computer technology to work on a practical and interesting scientific problem. YWSI also introduces girls to exciting careers and job opportunities.
YWSI is open to students who are currently sixth and seventh graders. Science and math teachers are also encouraged to apply. Students and teachers interested in YWSI may visit the Web site, e-mail YWSI, or call (614) 292-6082 for more information.
