Event description

Description

Women lag behind men in computing and technology industries. One possible contributor to this disparity is that women are less likely to enroll in computing courses.This program aims to encourage girls to enroll in computing courses by introducing them to computing in a fun, friendly and relaxed environment. Girls fail to be as involved in computing because of the negative connotations and stereotypes associated with computing. To overcome the negative connotations associated with computing, this program will show girls how versatile computing is and the impact it has on society. Learning computing skills will open up doors of opportunities for girls and encourage them to pursue careers in computing or apply computing in their subject of interest. The time spent in this program will train girls to persevere and work together to solve problems.Participants will be introduced to technology through programming in Python, Java, HTML, and Arduino Robotics.This program is free of charge and lunch will be provided at each meeting.Open to girls in grades 7-10. Join us every Saturday from 10 am - 2 pm
