This summer, the Kansas City Engineering Zone (KC EZ) Girls App Camp provided the basics of coding and Smartphone app design to middle and high school girls. Held from August 4 – August 8 on the UMKC Campus, the camp attracted over 20 participants. The KC EZ was launched in partnership with the UMKC SCE. See KMBC’s news coverage, App Camp Aims to Guide Girls Toward High Tech Careers, for more information about the Girls App Camp and KC Engineering Zone opens doors for students and stirs hope for more information about the KC EZ. Coverage of the Girls App Camp can also be found on KCUR.
Dean Kevin Truman and the faculty and staff of the UMKC School of Computing and Engineering joined with our Kansas City community to celebrate the opening of the Kansas City Engineering Zone (KC EZ) on Thursday, Jan. 29, 2015. Located on the UMKC campus at 4825 Troost Ave., KC EZ is a direct response to the equity and access issues faced by Kanas City’s K-12 urban schools and their students, providing tremendous STEM resources and mentoring.
