Sophia SchwartsmanScripps College, Art History major
“I'm pretty much mind blown at how cool this program is. I don't think a lot of people come out of college with tech skills and therefore have to learn on the job, but having a solid foundation like this without compromising credit is invaluable.”
Jaelyn TaylorDavidson College, Computational & Digital Studies
“I am incredibly grateful for this opportunity and everything I've learned. Would I recommend this to everyone? YES! This has hands down been my best semester at Davidson thus far. Between what I learned, how I learned, and the possibilities left to learn, every expectation was met and blown out of proportion.”
Ned BaiDavidson College, Political Science
“I've never been a mathematics or science person but I realized computer science is for everyone as long as you're interested and continuously curious you can do anything you want with it.”
John BillupsDavidson College, Economics
“As a non-computer science major, I wanted to see what an increasingly tech-centric world looked like. This program answers that in the classroom, in the start-ups and companies you visit, and in the soft and hard skill sessions you can apply outside of the program.”
Emma Ruth BurnsBryn Mawr College, Archaeology
“The people in this program are fascinating, and the things that I’ve learned in sessions have helped me to understand the dynamics of group work and how best to capitalize upon my own and other peoples’ strengths.”
