Iva-Amanda Nelson ‘23, Christie-Ann Nelson ‘23, and Adria Tebo ’23 were recently honored with National Center for Women & Information Technology (NCWIT) Awards for Aspirations in Computing. The NCWIT works to increase the meaningful participation of girls and women in computing. 

Amanda won the Regional Aspirations in Computing Award, which is extremely difficult to win. Her sister Christie achieved a Regional Honorable Mention for the same award, and Tebo was named Regional Rising Star. They were recognized for their work in CAD Design, 3D Printing and Robotics courses, which are part of Northwood’s Innovation, Engineering, & Entrepreneurship Department and offered at Northwood’s Innovation Hub.

The NCWIT Award for Aspirations in Computing honors female, genderqueer, or non-binary students in 9th-12th grade for their computing-related achievements and interests. The award also encourages them to pursue their passion. 

“I am inspired by my achievement. Since a young age I have always been into STEM-related activities,” Amanda Nelson said. “This award means a lot to me. Since coming to Northwood, I have been open to so many new opportunities and am extremely grateful for the opportunity to win this award,” she added. 

The Northwood community is extremely proud of Amanda, Christie, and Adria. Northwood encourages more students to challenge themselves and participate in STEM-related opportunities at school.
