2006's program ran from June 19th–30th with 20 young women from Columbus area middle and high schools. These young women were mentored during their two-week study by six women graduate students and the director of ACCAD.
This year's program looked at digital artists as proponents of social change through their art and animation. Projects focused on creating 3D animation with Maya on the topic of Ohio prairies, their history, value and preservation needs.
