DO-IT Summer Study
DO-IT Summer Study is a time when the DO-IT Scholars meet in person. The first year (Phase I) Scholars receive extensive online training and get a chance to see college life first-hand while staying at McCarty Residence Hall. They attend sessions on a variety of topics such as
  • Biology- replacing a sheep's heart valve
  • Computer Science/Mathematics- discovering how math can be useful for finding information in digital images and creating special effects
  • Chemistry and Environmental Studies- participating in lab experiments to determine what's in Lake Washington water and how the water quality has an impact on environmental issues

Second year (Phase II) Scholars participate in focused workshops and receive computer training on more advanced topics.
