Three Chatham High School students won Aspirations in Computing Awards through the National Center for Women in Technology: Amira Mouline, Catarina DeMatos and Margaret Harrigan.

The awards were presented at a Kean University awards dinner on April 5.

DeMatos, a senior, plans to attend New Jersey Institute of Technology as a Computer Science major next year. She said, “At NJIT, I hope to take on many internships in the city and continue to learn more about robotics by joining a robotics team. After college, I see myself working for a technology or engineering company, as well as creating my own tech startup company.”
