Join Black Girls CODE for MasterCard's Girls4Tech™, their signature education program, designed for young girls around the world.

By leveraging the MasterCard employee expertise in payments technology, their goal is to inspire girls to build STEM skills to become leaders of tomorrow.

This hands-on, inquiry-based program connects the foundations of the MasterCard business to science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) principles and shows girls that it takes all kinds of interests and skills to pursue a STEM career. The curriculum is based on global science and math standards and was created in conjunction with their top engineers and technologists. It showcases their payments technology – algorithms, encryption, fraud detection, data analysis, digital convergence and the power of their network.

This event is intended for girls ages 10-11.
