Snapshots 1994


Welcome to DO-IT Snapshots 1994. The DO-IT (Disabilities, Opportunities, Internetworking and Technology) program is primarily funded by the National Science Foundation. It serves to increase the participation of individuals with disabilities in science, engineering, and mathematics academic programs and careers.

One component of the project is the DO-IT Scholars Program. DO-IT Scholars are high school students with disabilities who have interests in science, mathematics, and engineering and want to go to college. They attend Summer Study Programs on the University of Washington campus and are provided with computer systems and Internet network connections in their homes. They access resources and communicate with each other, DO- IT staff, and volunteer mentors.

Everyone wants to meet the DO-IT Scholars! The Phase II Scholars included in this album began the program in 1993; Phase I Scholars started in 1994. Each Scholar submitted their short autobiography via electronic mail in August of 1994. Their pictures were taken with a video camera, digitized, and merged with their autobiographies to create this publication.

I hope you enjoy meeting the DO-IT Scholars!
