UCM student, CITRIS NexTech Robotics Educator, and Valle alum, Peter Sou said of the experience: ¡Valle! was a wonderful opportunity of growth for me. From developing soft skills, like my elevator pitch and updating resume, to learning technical skills, like Tensor Flow and Google Earth Engine, I was able to find more confidence in myself when applying for internships and eliminate my imposter syndrome.”

¡Valle! is currently accepting applications. The brief applications are due by December 5th, 2021. Please help us share this opportunity.
