2001 DO-IT Summer Study Schedule


July 31, 2001 - August 10, 2001


University of Washington


DO-IT Summer Study is a chance the DO-IT Scholars to get together. The first year 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

Phase II Scholars participate in focused workshops and receive computer training on more advanced topics such as

  • WWW page design
  • Creating Camp Courage home page

Schedule Notes

  • It's expected that you will arrive promptly and participate in all program activities. This schedule of daily activities should help you know what is planned and when to be ready! Plan ahead for personal care or transportation needs. If you have special circumstances that require an adjustment to your schedule, request approval from a DO-IT staff member.
  • Complete individual or group projects as assigned. Use time available during open computer labs to complete newsletter articles, and other assignments.
  • We have created a wide variety of activities and understand that you will not enjoy all of them equally. However, we ask that you show your appreciation for the people who are contributing their time and talents to this program by keeping an open and respectful attitude.
  • If you require special disability-related accommodations in order to participate in an activity or complete an assignment, request your accommodation needs with the presenter or a DO-IT staff member. Use these opportunities to practice self-advocacy!
  • It is expected that you will abide by all curfews and gather only in designated campus and building locations. In Terry Hall, please remember that only males are permitted on Floor 2 and only females are permitted on Floor 3 (this includes individual rooms). However, the Small Lounge between Floor 2 and Floor 3 is an "open" area.
  • Please be aware of your personal safety during the program. Between Terry Hall and other campus buildings, always travel in a group of 3 or more and always travel with an intern or staff member.
  • If you have suggestions for additional activities to add to the schedule, share your ideas with Sheryl Burgstahler, Sara Lopez, or Tracy Jirikowic.
