CodeCrush Immersion Experiences were created to show 8th and 9th-grade girls, and their mentoring teachers, the world of IT. For three days, the UNO College of Information Science and Technology inspires CodeCrushers to take a deeper look at IT through hands-on experiences with emerging fields such as bioinformatics, IT innovation, music technology and cybersecurity.
My student grew so much in her self-confidence, she met new friends, stayed with strangers and left as friends … Doors were opened for her, and she is convinced she can go to UNO and do what she is passionate about

Students and teachers stay on campus and and experience Omaha through our eyes: checking out the IT departments of global corporations, meeting women IT professionals, and visiting the behind-the-scenes of local attractions. 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.
