Interested in technology?

Google is invested in increasing the enrollment and retention of computer science students. With this in mind, Google is hosting the ninth annual Computer Science Summer Institute (CSSI), a three-week introduction to computer science for graduating high school seniors with an interest in technology —especially students from historically underrepresented groups in the field.



I’ve attached an article from Catherine Kim from Folsom High School who attended CSSI last year. Her article may be inspiring to a student who is not sure if they are ready for coding!



Interested?



Please visit www.google.com/students/cssi for more information and to apply. Application deadline: March 3, 2016. Final decisions will be announced by early May at the latest. Have questions? Feel free to Google at cssi@google.com or generationgoogle@google.com.
