Event description

Description

Spend a day learning and participating in fun activities and connecting with other girls who are interested in exploring computer science and technology.

GIRLsmarts4tech is an outreach program aimed at inspiring girls to explore technology. During the day-long workshop, girls will learn about various aspects of computer science, such as mobile app development, user interfaces, and how computer science applies in other fields and disciplines. This workshop is intended for Grade 6-7 girls who have little or no programming experience.

Note: If your daughter participated in the Technovation program, this program will be too easy for her.

Workshop activities

Programming
Programming can be fun, educational, and easy to learn. In this activity you will learn some basic concepts and will help to build an app that runs on a smartphone. See how easily and quickly you can start programming. What you can accomplish is limited only by your imagination.

User Experience and User Interface
Do you know why you like some apps more than others? Are you curious about why the Instagram home page is so cool? In the user experience and user interface activity, you use your creativity to learn how to design apps users love.

Parents are expected to drop off and pick up their daughter in person.

You must have registered through Eventbrite in order to participate.

This event is brought to you by the University of Waterloo Women in Computer Science and SAP.
