‘Teaching game theory to high school girls also inspired me a lot’ say PhD students

Kudos to PhD students Xinmeng Zhao, Shifali Bansal, and Sonza Singh for volunteering, and a shout-out to the instructor Destinie Nock, PhD student from Prof Erin Baker’s lab, for the successful activity that inspired students and mentors alike. The activity was titled “Optimizing the Electric Grid – Let’s Bid”. The volunteers reflected on the vital role they can play, through such instructional activities, in inspiring more girls to pursue a career in engineering and engaging in solving the 21st century challenges of our society. The activity was part of the ‘Women in Engineering and Computing Career Day for High School Girls’ organized by the College of Engineering Diversity Program at UMass Amherst
