Subject: [ELA_COMMUNITY-L] Summer REU/grad school support/CMD-IT student competition
v) CMD-IT* (Center for Minorities and People with Disabilities in Information Technology) is hosting a Student Competition, Introductory CS Course Projects: It's All About Inclusion.
The objective of this competition is to have students develop descriptions of computing projects that they find exciting, inspiring, and appealing, which focus on underrepresented communities (African-Americans, Hispanics, Native Americans, Pacific Islanders, and People with Disabilities). The projects can be artistic (for example using motion detection to make music with body movement) or practical (for example using embedded microchips to help in emergency situations). Medical, cultural, economic - the projects can focus on any topic so long as it includes computing. The competition does not require implementation of the proposed project. The scope of the project should be consistent with what a team of two students can implement in a two week time-frame for an introductory computing course. The new deadline for project submissions is December 17, 2012. Award recipients will present a poster at the 2013 SIGCSE Conference<http://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp?e=001p0Iw6dTCnTOt5yg4aRYykptXxCy1p37Y-UjtuckI7vDlgRhhNtVRrLGGx9-p47Cf-eSHtS55012KFTjO06Y43za3Z3CN-rrozhsEldcZUPIEw64PQW0VeyEMLluqtVz0>, March 6-9, 2013 in Denver, CO.
ENTRY DEADLINE: The entry deadline is December 17, 2012.
