Nurturing Seeds of Innovation

Lauren Weiss '21 started Geek Girl to advance education and close the gender gap in computer science through virtual coding courses, leadership trainings, and an iPhone app to connect mentors and mentees. She got her project off the ground with the help of the new Student Seed Innovation Grant, which provides up to $6,000 in funding to help students’ innovative ideas become a reality.

Colorado College recognizes and honors the original inhabitants who first settled in the area and who called the nearby highest mountain “Tava,” the original name given by the Ute people to what is now known as Pikes Peak.
