GAITEway was founded to spread our knowledge and experiences as high schoolers learning about artificial intelligence and computer science in the 21st century. Our goal is to be the "gaiteway" and the first step for young girls to be able to pursue a career in computer sciences.
Currently, the three co-founders of GAITEway are juniors at Dougherty Valley High School in San Ramon, CA. They attended a summer program called Stanford AI4ALL, previously SAILORS (Stanford Artificial Intelligence Laboratory Outreach Program), a highly selective, two-week, residential program held at Stanford University along with 29 other sophomore girls from all over the world where they learned about artificial intelligence and its applications in everyday life. They were inspired by the inclusive learning atmosphere and were driven to start this outreach program for middle school students to create fun and informative events to spark an interest in STEM in girls in their community.
