Networking Night

Tami Tidwell, DO-IT staff

This spring, DO-IT hosted an AccessSTEM Networking Night at the UW. The event kicked off bi-monthly meetings for high school and college students on the autism spectrum. During this first meeting, we discussed how students in the group want to communicate with each other using technology; they decided to stick with the current email-based forum. Other topics included issues specific to students on the autism spectrum; science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) academic and career options; and tips from other students on how to succeed in college life. Students were also able to network and reconnect with one another and enjoy pizza together. Bi-monthly meetings will be held throughout the year.
