This YWiC First Lego League Team is for young women in middle school, who have previously participated in a YWiC summer intensive and/or after-school program.

NMSU's Computer Science and Young Women in Computing after-school programs are tailored to achieve four major goals:

1) Build community among young women through computing;
2) Increase young women's interest in computing;
3) Gain knowledge and experience with programming languages; &
4) Drastically increase young women's confidence in Computer Science.

Participants utilize computational thinking through a variety of interactive software tools. These tools, along with team building, career exploration, and leadership activities, show students that computer science is a fun, creative, engaging, and rewarding field!

NMSU is a nationally ranked Carnegie Foundation research institution with top performing programs and services. We strive for excellence in all areas of teaching and learning and work to identify best practices for continued success. All participants will engage in this process via pre- and post-assessments, entry and exit interviews, daily surveys, and other data gathering methods.

First Lego League team is sponsored by the outreach team in the Department of Computer Science at NMSU! Instructors are accomplished NMSU students studying computer science and electrical engineering. We utilize near-peer mentors as educators to build strong connections between participants and the exciting world of CS.

Acceptance into this program is limited to 10 young women per team on a partial competitive basis.
