tennessee Chapter Mission
What We Strive For
As the state of Tennessee continues reaching closer and closer to becoming a new hub for technology, more students are expressing interest in the STEM field. However, some of these students do not know where to start, and gaining admission to a computer science school is not something very easily achievable. Our mission as the state chapter is to give these students direction and guidance, so that they are able to develop an early understanding of computer science and other STEM majors, which will eventually lead to a generation of tech experts who are able to make the world a better place to live in.
Tennessee Chapter Leader
“My name is Maitreya Dixit, and I am a rising senior at Beech High School in Hendersonville, TN. I am 17 years old, and I am strongly inclined towards the combined study of computer science and biotechnology.
The study of computer science should be readily available to everyone equally. At my school, most students chose other majors over technology, and as a chapter leader of GCL, I hope to reverse that statistic and show my fellow peers how STEM can open up endless opportunities for truly ambitious and hard working individuals. I hope I can eradicate the hesitation that many young adults have about computer science not being the right field for them.
In my free time, I enjoy learning how to problem solve using code and volunteering at local non-profits. As a GCL chapter leader in Tennessee, I look forward to spreading the love of computing by moderating two types of events in TN: inviting effective guest speakers to engage and encourage students and organizing in-state competitions that offer incentives to participating students.”
