This week (March 4-7), Kaila Avent, a freshman at HHS, and her teacher Dr. Darci Karr, have the opportunity to be at the University of Nebraska at Omaha for CodeCrush. This is an immersion experience for 8th and 9th grade girls and their mentor teachers created to show them the world of IT. For three days and four nights, the UNO College of Information Science and Technology will inspire girls and their teachers to take a deeper look at IT through hands-on experiences with emerging IT fields such as bioinformatics, IT innovation, music technology and cybersecurity.

Students and teachers stay on campus and get to experience the IT departments of global corporations, meeting women professionals who are engaged in IT, visiting the behind-the-scenes of local attractions and even go to a Maverick hockey game. The days will be packed with dinners with IS&T students, staff and faculty, panel discussions with women in the field, as well as lunch with an IT mentor.

Kaila was one of 30 chosen out of a field of 110 applicants to participate in this event. The applicants came from 53 schools in 36 different communities in Nebraska and Iowa.
