Program For DisabledHigh school sophomores with disabilities who have a knack for numbers, neutrons and the like are invited to apply to a unique program through the University of Washington College of Engineering.
Now in its second year, the DO-IT, or Disabilities, Opportunities, Internetworking and Technology program uses home computers and electronic mail to link talented high school students year-round with each other and to others around the world. Students also attend two weeks on the UW campus in Seattle in the summer.
