My name is Adán Delval, I am originally from Mexico but grew up in the U.S. I am the Director for the VIL program at New Mexico State University. I also oversee an NSF grant to recruit, retain and support college students pursuing their degree in computing fields.
I highly enjoy the VIL program as I get to serve and help students who are low-income and not exposed to these types of technologies otherwise. I too was one of these students and was not able to have access to summer camps. That being said, I find it extremely rewarding to be part of this program.
