Description

We invite you to a graduation/holiday party! Our girls have been working hard for 6 weeks to learn Javascript and make games and projects. We want to show off their work and show you how you can get involved.

We will have a panel of women in tech who will speak about

  • Their journey into tech and
  • Why we need more women in tech
  • and what girls can do to right now to ensure a successful future in tech

This event is for

  • Women in tech (or not) looking for volunteer opportunities
  • Parents looking for programming to get their middle school girls in
  • Community partners looking to give in-kind and/or monetary donations to expand programming
  • School and community leaders looking to bring an event like this to their school or community
