We’re hosting our first ever all girls code camp!
Falling just after Ada Lovelace Day, this 3 hour day camp is an opportunity for young girls to get together and learn some of the basic building blocks of computer programming. Designed to introduce them to new projects and ideas, participants will go home with even more resources to continue to learn and build their skills after camp is over.
Computers are changing everything, but nationwide only 1 in 4 schools teaches computer science. Unfortunately, that creates an opportunity gap…and learning about technology shouldn’t be exclusive. While we’re focused on closing the gap for all kids, we recognize that for girls, it’s even more important. By 2020, there will be 1.4 million jobs available in computing related fields. US graduates are on track to fill 29% of those jobs. Women are on track to fill just 3%.
When girls learn to code, they become change agents in their communities. They create technology that makes the world a better place. We want to give them the tools they need to get started.
