TEACHING CODE AND MORE
Each summer, WiTNY hosts an educational program for women starting this first and second-year at CUNY in the fall. In just five days, students learn about coding, digital product design, user experience research, and other areas of tech. No previous experience with computer science is required, and students are paid a stipend after completing the program.
Sample Schedule (9am-3:00pm)
Monday: Intro to coding
Tuesday: User research and data collection
Wednesday: Design and prototype your solution
Friday: Pitch your solution
My interest in tech transformed into a passion following my participation in the WiTNY Summer Guild, during which I engaged in the process of developing a digital product. Inspired by that experience, I applied for another of WiTNY’s programs: the Winternship. I am so thankful to all the remarkable people who made these experiences possible.”
