Go CODE Girl will educate, inspire and equip girls with the digital skills, confidence and resources needed to pursue education in technology, computing and engineering. Careers in technology, computing and engineering are the fastest growing industry. For twitter, use #GoCODEGirl
You are welcome to bring a friend and register together to attend. We encourage you to bring in your tablet/smart phone, as there will be some online activities during the event.
Why is this necessary?
Today, software forms the backbone of our interconnected and digital world. This includes everything from smart machines, to our communication systems to the cars we drive. Coding is the ability to read and write in a language that a computer can understand so that you can instruct a computer how to perform complex tasks. Learning to code can lead to increased digital confidence, a different way of thinking about problems and the ability to understand and use technology to help develop creative solutions in almost any discipline.
If you have a boy that is interested in similar programming, we highly encourage you to explore individual websites of our ONWiE members. As well, please be aware that we have an inclusive view of the word “girl” and we welcome trans, gender queer and non-binary folks interested in our event.source: www.onwie.ca
