Comments from C-Tech² Participants

"I just wanted to thank you for giving me the incredible chance to participate in C-Tech^2 this year! I am extremely thankful for the opportunity to attend the various lessons and activities, and the knowledge and insights I gained during the program have significantly broadened my engineering aspirations and understanding of various engineering careers. Beyond the academic aspect, I am also grateful for the invaluable team bonding and networking opportunities that C-Tech^2 provided. Meeting like-minded individuals and engaging with professionals in the field was an inspiring and motivating experience. I also thoroughly enjoyed the project, as it made us think outside of the box, and challenged us to find solutions to problems we wouldn't have even considered before attending the program."

"I wanted to email you and just share how much I loved C-Tech^2. I can’t begin to tell you how much I enjoyed seeing Virginia Tech’s campus, learning from such amazing professors, and making friends with like-minded girls (both the participants and the RAs/PAs). Thank you so much for an incredible experience! As you may recall, my group for the final project, Switch^2, won first place. We really clicked and worked well together and I’m so glad we had the opportunity to experiment and design as a team, as well as get feedback from the Bloomberg representatives."

"My daughter had a great time at the C-Tech^2 camp. She's been talking so much about all the things she learnt and the friendships she made over the last 2 weeks. Thank you so much for leading and running this camp which introduces girls to the field of engineering and I am so glad my daughter was able to get a sampler on the different types of engineering that's out there."

"My girls arrived home safely. We are very happy that we became a part of C-Tech^2 2023. We are sincerely grateful to you for everything: the professionalism, the welcoming attitude, the care, the great organization, and the help. My daughters are extremely happy. For them this is a very useful experience."

"I really enjoyed this week. Thank you so much for all the opportunities you provided and to the professors who gave their time. This really helped me decide what I want to do with my life."

"I just wanted to write to say thank you for my experience at CTech^2! I got to learn about many different engineering disciplines and meet so many new people. Thank you so much for this opportunity and experience, I know for a fact that this will be a core memory of my 2023 summer!"
