Girls in Science and Engineering (GISE)
Girls in Science and Engineering (GISE) is a week-long non-residential summer program for middle school students. The program is administered by the U-M Women in Science and Engineering (WISE) Program and supported by CSE.
GISE focuses on hands-on activities that are both fun and challenging. Campers elect a Focus Project in a particular hands-on subject area to attend each morning (chemistry, computer science, engineering, human genetics, physics, and robotics). Afternoons are spent in a variety of hands-on science and engineering activities, including group collaborative competitions, touring dynamic U-M labs, and learning about science and engineering careers.
Campers who chose computer science get to do activities such as tearing down a computer or dissecting a DDR mat, creating a computer or game controller, learning to program in Phogram and animate in Alice, manipulate images in Photoshop, or create and edit video. The program varies each year based on current trends.
