Tufts Girls of Code - Cybersecurity
Sat, April 8, 2017, 9:00 AM – 1:00 PM EDT
Cybersecurity from Tufts Girls of Code! Come join us for a day of learning, creating, and community. You will learn all about cybersecurity. We always have a great time, and we'd love to have you join us.
Open to girls ages 10-18.
WHY: The U.S. Labor Department has estimated that there will be 1.4 million jobs openings for computer-related occupations this decade, and the median job for people with a computer-science degree pays around $80,000 to $100,000. Of the STEM fields, computer science and computer engineering have the highest median earnings for recent college graduates without advanced degrees, and only around 12% are women. We want to change this!
HOW: In our Workshops female coders conduct a fun and interactive learning experience that includes an introduction to computer programming, website construction, games, and so much more. By the end of the workshop, girls have a better understanding of programming, the future of Computer Science, and a desire to enter into a similar career field.
