Award recipients are selected based on their aptitude and aspirations in technology and computing; leadership ability; academic history; and plans for post-secondary education. Aspirations in Computing is a talent development pipeline initiative of the National Center for Women & IT (NCWIT) designed to increase women's meaningful participation in computing careers by providing encouragement, visibility, community, leadership opportunities, scholarships, and internships to high potential technically inclined young women. Aspirations in Computing is the only national level talent development program for young women in computing and information technology. The NCWIT Aspirations in Computing program engages young women interested in technology and computing. By generating visibility for these young women in their local communities, the program encourages their continued interest in computing, attracts the attention and support of educational and corporate institutions, and emphasizes at a personal level the importance of women's participation in computing and IT. To learn more about the Aspirations program, please visit The 2014 Houston Affiliate awardees will be recognized in a ceremony in April at the University of Houston Downtown and will receive awards at Energy Day on October 17, The 2015 SeaPerch Challenge May 30, 2015 SeaPerch is an innovative underwater robotics program that equips teachers and students with the resources they need to build an underwater Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) in an in-school or out-of-school setting. Students build the ROV from a kit comprised of low-cost, easily accessible parts, following a curriculum that teaches basic engineering and science concepts with a marine engineering theme. The SeaPerch Program provides students with the opportunity to learn about robotics, engineering, science, and mathematics (STEM) while building an underwater ROV as part of a science and engineering technology curriculum. Throughout the project, students will learn engineering concepts,

4 problem solving, teamwork, and technical applications. Building a SeaPerch ROV teaches basic skills in ship and submarine design and encourages students to explore naval architecture and marine and ocean engineering principles. It also teaches basic science and engineering concepts and tool safety and technical procedures. Students learn important engineering and design skills and are exposed to all the exciting careers that are possible in naval architecture and naval, ocean, and marine engineering. SeaPerch Is... A hands-on educational tool Fun and challenging A curriculum that meets national learning standards Integrates STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) Teaches the teachers Builds teamwork and inspires young minds Introduces STEM career discussions Students learn best by doing, and during the process of building SeaPerch, they follow steps to completely assemble the Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV), test it, and then participate in launching their vehicles. After the SeaPerch robot is constructed, students are encouraged to test their vehicles, deploy them on missions, and compete in a culminating event, the SeaPerch Challenge. Events at the Challenge can include: Vehicle performance - maneuvering and recovery Innovative design (optional) Poster presentations - oral presentations to judges Winners of local or regional Challenges can compete in the National SeaPerch Challenge, held each Spring. The Communication, Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics (CSTEM) Challenge April 17-18, 2015 George R. Brown Convention Center The CSTEM Challenge is a highly motivating competition that engages students in multi-age groups to collaboratively solve six challenges that are designed by industry professionals and national standards-aligned project-based learning activities, thus demonstrating the impact of teacher training on student learning and student performance in a STEM competition environment. The six challenges revolve around competitions in the creation and development of remote controlled robots, geoscience, creative writing, sculpture, film, and photography. The students are required to participate in all challenge categories, providing them with an integrated STEM learning experience. The teachers are required to participate in 24 hours of professional development. C-STEM has a proven track record of success and a model that is

5 scalable and sustainable. The organization has been researching how students and teachers want to experience STEM for more than ten years. The program kicks-off each fall and culminates in the spring with a competition. The 2015 CSTEM Challenge Kick-off will take place on October 25 from 10am-12pm. The 2014 CSTEM Challenge competition will take place at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston, Texas, April 17-18, For information on entering or questions, please visit Local Houston area winning schools will be recognized at the international CSTEM Challenge competition awards ceremony, receive awards at Energy Day and will be invited to display their projects at Energy Day on October 17, The International Sustainable World Energy, Engineering, and Environment Project (I-SWEEEP) May 7-11, 2015 George R. Brown Convention Center, Houston, Texas The International Sustainable World Energy, Engineering, and Environment Project (I-SWEEEP), is a groundbreaking science competition open to high school students. The inaugural I-SWEEEP academic competition was launched in the spring of 2008 with a goal to bring the best and brightest math and science focused students from around the world to Houston for an Olympiad of epic academic proportions. I-SWEEEP works with local, national, and international science fair organizations to bring together the top-ranking participants and qualifying projects from these competitions.
