This event will showcase projects of students who created (or tried to create) something with their kits or using other IoT components. Prizes will be given to the best projects. All Duke students are invited to submit a project by 5:00PM on Thursday March 22 using the showcase submission form.
Join Kathy Kleiman, Historian and Internet Attorney, for a screening of her award-winning film, "The Computers."

While the program became world famous, the women were never recognized and were overlooked for decades.
