Mentors for Aspiring Girls in Computing

Mentors for Aspiring Girls in Computing logo

The Computer Science Department and the College of Science at Purdue University have endorsed a special collaboration between undergraduate computer science students and after-school coding clubs for high school-aged girls. The Mentors for Aspiring Girls in Computing (MAGIC) program attempts to increase interest in technology career paths among young women through the creation of safe and positive learning environments, the use of relevant CS activities for instruction, and near-peer mentoring to encourage future success. 

Students in the MAGIC program.  Teamwork exercise. Students using computers.

The MAGIC program currently addresses computer programming through a variety of activities including generative art, games, artificial intelligence, app development and computer security. The MAGIC service learning group works with Lafayette-area high schools and middle schools and serves about 40 students on a weekly or bi-weekly basis.

This program is currently on hiatus.

Thanks to all the Corporate Partners for their support of our program!
