Windows of Opportunity for Women in Technology
You can make a difference at the Purdue Polytechnic Institute!
Available to 9th - 12th graders.
Come to campus and find out how technology is more than a machine or a gadget. It is a way of thinking about today’s challenges and overcoming them with innovation, creativity and hard work.
Bring a family member (a parent or guardian) and discover the world of opportunity that awaits at the Purdue Polytechnic. You will be able to experience technology projects firsthand. You’ll see technology applied in a variety of ways. You’ll see how technology can impact lives, individually and on a grander scale.
