Program For Disabled
The following article, reprinted with permission, appeared in the March 1, 1994 issue of the Daily News Miner in Fairbanks, AK.
High 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.
