The STARS Come Out for Special Event

The STARS came out last week for public display in a special celebration event in the east atrium of EBII.  No, these are not night stars or Hollywood stars; these STARS represent the Students and Technology in Academics, Research, and Service initiative

Motivated by a decline of enrollment in computer science and related disciplines, STARS is a multi-institutional student organization dedicated to broadening participation in computing. 

During the December 6th poster session, students displayed the results of a semesters' work in community outreach, undergraduate research, and mentoring.  Representatives were on hand from STARS corporate sponsors Tekelec, EMC, Network Appliance and SAS Institute.
