UIC CS Department sent 26 undergraduate female students and 8 graduate students to join the 12,000 attendees at the Grace Hopper Celebration in Houston Texas. Funded in part since 2014 by BRAID funding, this is an opportunity for female students to be inspired by industry leaders and network with companies looking for interns and employees.

Zebras at the Ol' Pejeta conservancy in Kenya where in January 2010 UIC computer science students joined Princeton biology students in a unique field course in computational population biology (co-taught by Professor Tanya Berger-Wolf). Among other projects, students studied zebra social behavior and designed software for automatic identification of individual zebras by stripes. EVL students JD Pirtle, Arthur Nishimoto, Karan Chakrapani, Todd Silvia, and Philip Pilosi received Honorable Mention for "20 Foot Canvas." The project pays homage to traditional painting, enabling artists to paint on a large-scale digital ?canvas? by touching the wall with fingers or traditional brushes.
