Notre Dame San Jose High School senior Lauren Fahey has received the 2013 Bay Area NCWIT Award for Aspirations in Computing. The award, sponsored by Microsoft, Motorola Solutions Foundation, and the National Center for Women & Information Technology (NCWIT), recognizes high school women for computing-related achievements as part of an effort to encourage more young women to choose careers in technology.
A total of 25 award winners and 25 runners-up were selected from high schools in the Bay Area for their outstanding aptitude and interest in information technology and computing, leadership ability, good academic history, and plans for post-secondary education.
“Encouraging young women’s interest in technology careers is critical: our workforce needs their creativity and their innovation,” said Lucy Sanders, CEO and Co-founder of NCWIT.
“I was excited to receive this award,” Lauren

said. “It means a lot because I’ve been heavily involved in robotics for the last four years. Robotics is still very male-dominated. We’re lucky at Notre Dame because girls hold every position and, since we’re a small team, we all get to participate in all areas.”
Lauren is graduating this month and will attend San Jose State University to major in mechanical engineering. “Notre Dame is proud to have one of our young women receive this prestigious award,” said Principal Mary Beth Riley.
“It speaks to the strength of our STEM offerings and our robotics program, both of which continue to grow. It also illustrates one of the benefits of an all-girls education, where young women have opportunities they may not have in a co-ed environment.”
