Girlz Gone Wireless

July 27 - 31, 2015

Girlz Gone Wireless (GGW) is a program hosted by Professor Ada Poon and her lab members in Stanford’s Electrical Engineering (EE) department. This new one-week summer workshop will introduce high school students to the wonderful world of EE, teaching them basic concepts about electricity and electronics and how they are being used to create tiny implantable medical devices.

The workshop is free and open to local rising 9th and 10th graders with a minimum 3.5 GPA and an interest in engineering. There are no prerequisites other than a desire to learn about EE. Priority will be given to those members of groups who are the most underrepresented in EE today: women, African Americans, Latinas/Latinos, and Native Americans. Girlz Gone Wireless especially targets students from low income families or those who will be the first generation in their families to attend college.
