DO-IT Does Videos

DO-IT has created two dynamic videos. In "DO-IT Scholars," the summer '93 participants are the stars. Nhi voices the concerns of many when she expressed her initial fears about staying at the University for two weeks, "The UW is such a big place!"

Hollis shares how the computer allows him to express his "ideas to other people." Mark tells how he uses a mini-keyboard to access his computer.

Congratulations Graduates

Four DO-IT Scholars are soon to graduate from high school:

  • Anna
  • Lloyd
  • Rodney
  • Mitch

All are planning to pursue a higher education, but all final decisions about where they'll enroll have not been made. DO-IT staff, of course, want them all to come to the U-Dub!

Journey to Russia

The riotously colored onion-shaped domes of St. Basil's Cathedral in Moscow...an immense bronze statue of Lenin gazing sternly out over thousands of young Russians dancing to rap music...smiles bursting out on the faces of deaf children as we visited their classrooms. These are three memories I cherish from my two-week trip to Russia in September 1993.

Fish, Robots and Fun

The Battelle tour was great! I really enjoyed it, and I think everyone else did too! It was lots of fun and we all learned a bunch of interesting stuff at the same time. Now, everything was really good and presented very well, but I think I can speak for everybody when I say that I really had fun playing in the Robotics Lab and the Fisheries Biology Lab.
