The social events in WiCS create a community within the department that helps students have a support system. Throughout the semester we have fun events such as kayaking and bowling. Once a month we organize brown bags in which girls can meet other members and an officer on a smaller scale.
Makers is dedicated to inviting CS students who often have very limited exposure to embedded systems, which is the interaction of software and hardware. We mainly explore this using micro-controllers, namely Arduino boards.
