Every gift makes a difference!

All gifts, large and small, support talented young women interested in pursuing computer science. Make your gift today!


Margaret Hamilton

First Bytes has had approximately 900 girls go through the camp in the last 14 years. We need your help to continue supporting these aspiring high school women in their pursuit of computer science at UT and beyond.


Anita Borg

The camp admits approximately 60-70 female students each summer and provides opportunities to learn a programming language, network with successful women in both corporate and academic fields, visit research labs, explore careers in computer science, and to experience life on a college campus.


Fran Allen

24% of the 2014 UTCS freshman class was women and 25% of these women attended First Bytes.


Ada Lovelace

Though women now represent 47% of the workforce, as compared to 38% in the 1970s, only 12% of engineers are female. -


Grace Hopper

Women earned 50.3% of the nation's science and engineering bachelor’s degrees in 2013. However, they receive only 17.9% of the nation's awarded computer science degrees and make up only 25% of the computer and mathematical sciences focused workforce. We need your help giving talented young women the same opportunity to access the exponentially expanding and rewarding field of computer science. -NSF, Science & Engineering Indicators, 2016
