April 13 – Saturday
9:00 AM – 10:00 AM | Welcome Breakfast
WiCS delivers a welcome message. Participants separate into working groups. Breakfast is served.
10:00 AM – 12:00 PM | Work Session I
12:00 PM – 12:30 PM | Lunch Break
Take a break and socialize with your group. Try not to talk about your program for a bit (I know, the temptation is real!). You should take a few minutes to decompress and ramp up for the rest of the day.
12:30 PM – 4:00 PM | Work Session II
4:00 PM – 5:00 PM | Presentations & Award Ceremony
Teams will each give a 5 minute presentation on their projects. Participants vote for a ‘people’s choice’ project while judges confer. Afterward, winners are announced and prizes are distributed!
