2014's program ran from June 2nd–13th with 15 young women from Columbus area middle schools. These young women were mentored during their two-week study by five women who study at OSU and work in the art, design and technology field and the director of the program.
This year's program looked at 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 the Olentangy Restoration Project, the river's history, value and preservation needs. We visited the Olentangy River Restoration Project on The Ohio State University's campus as a basis for our understanding of the project.
