YWISEI Program Competition Winners
Congratulations to Rabina Mainali (Hillcrest HS), Irma Puga Lule (Irma Rangel) and Jazmine Tule (Irma Rangel), winners of the Young WISE Investigators Program competition!
The Young WISE Investigators (YWISEI) Program is intended to inspire and encourage students at Hillcrest High School and Irma Rangel Young Women’s Leadership School in Dallas ISD to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Sponsored by the Office of Diversity and Community Engagement and Texas Instruments Foundation, the program provides mentoring and support for 12 high school students over a one-year period to complete a science and engineering project.
The program also seeks to reward top young women STEM achievers by awarding a scholarship to UT Dallas in spring 2013 to the top three student performers.The success of the program and the students’ completion of their project depends on a team of mentors comprised of UT Dallas students and professors, STEM industry professionals and teachers. Each mentor will guide one of the 12 selected program participants through the project development cycle.
