25 New Intel Computer Clubhouses Joined the Growing Global Network
Stina Cooke, from the Museum of Science, Boston, mentors youth at an Intel Computer Clubhouse Throughout the world, The Intel Foundation and Intel Corporation sponsor programs designed to enrich educational experiences for students in primary schools, secondary schools, and universities. Intel also recognizes the importance of learning outside the classroom.

Intel Computer Clubhouse Network
Each Intel Computer Clubhouse is an exciting learning environment where young people from ages 8 to 18 can work with peer and adult mentors and use cutting-edge technology, including professional software, to explore their personal interests. The Computer Clubhouse learning model, developed by the MIT Media Lab and the Museum of Science, Boston, helps build competencies including technological fluency, teamwork, complex problem-solving, and self-esteem.

Through a program component called "Clubhouse-to-College/Clubhouse-to-Career," members have access to tools and guidance to pursue advanced education in mathematics, science, engineering, or any area of interest. Clubhouse members discover the fun of being creators and designers of technology as they compose computer-generated music, produce videos, and create innovative art, animations, and kinetic sculptures.

In 2001, 25 new Intel Computer Clubhouses joined the growing network of 40 worldwide in cities such as New Delhi, India; Jerusalem, Israel; Dublin, Ireland; Manila, Philippines; Atlanta, Georgia; Los Angeles, California; New York City, New York, and Sacaton, Arizona, the first Clubhouse on Native-American land. In addition, Intel worked with the Museum of Science, Boston, to design and build a content-rich intranet that connects all Computer Clubhouses worldwide.

In cooperation with the Museum of Science, Boston, the MIT Media Lab, Hewlett-Packard, and software makers Adobe Systems*, Autodesk*, and Macromedia*, Intel will establish l00 Intel Computer Clubhouses in under-served communities worldwide by 2005. The Intel Computer Clubhouse Network will ultimately reach thousands of young people around the world.

Student and Teacher at Intel Computer Clubhouse Fair Play Summer Science Camps
The Girl Scouts of the USA, through a grant from the Intel Foundation, developed a summer science camp focused on engaging girls in engineering. While learning more about the engineered world around them, the girls developed prototypes for a future science fair project. Mentors from the local community provided the campers with a glimpse into the life of an engineer and challenges that they had personally encountered in their careers. The 2001 pilot program was implemented in three Intel site communities including Arizona, Oregon, and Texas. The camp will expand into seven new geographies in 2002 and the curriculum will be posted on-line at, providing a model that can be replicated throughout the world.
