2009's program ran from June 15th–26th with 11 young women from Columbus area middle and high schools. These young women were mentored during their two-week study by three women graduate students, one undergraduate 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. The group visited The Ohio State University's OSU Marion Prairie Nature Center as a basis for our understanding of prairies.
