Roadshows, Tours, and TechNights for Children with Hearing Impairments

For several years, Carnegie Mellon’s Women@SCS (School of Computer Science) has hosted a series of computing-related informal learning events and activities for local children. They successfully extended this outreach program to students from the Western Pennsylvania School for the Deaf (WPSD). Activities included interactive roadshow presentations to children and teachers, weekly technology skills sessions called TechNights, tours of Carnegie Mellon University’s (CMU) computing-related departments, and a one-day workshop.
