STARS Student Org at UNC Charlotte Receives NCWIT Symantec Student Seed Fund Grant
The STARS Student Organization at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte has been selected as a recipient of the NCWIT Symantec Student Seed Fund grant in recognition for their efforts to broaden participation in computing. The award will help STARS students in the College of Computing and Informatics to expand the impact of their outreach activities at James Martin Middle School, allowing them to purchase additional Lego Mindstorms EV3 equipment that will be used to introduce middle school students to computer science concepts. Congratulations to undergraduate student Michael Hester and academic liason Scott Heggen, who wrote the proposal for the NCWIT award, and to the STARS Student Organization at UNC Charlotte, who continue to make a difference through outstanding K-12 outreach activities.
