Girls Code @ CTEC


Girls Code @ CTEC is a weeklong program designed to encourage high school age girls to learn and be involved with computer science. Currently, more than 30% of the jobs/careers in the field of computing are going unfilled. These jobs are in high demand and also provide a deep level of impact and meaning for society.

2012 was our first offering with 10 girls participating in a full two day workshop learning about computer science, programming, and opportunities for women in technology.

2013 offered a full week of workshops July 8-12 involving AppInventor, Lego Robots and a day on the job with other women involved in Computer Science.

 

2014 will offer two different sessions of Girls Code at CTEC.

 

The first session is June 23-27 for the beginning students and is designed to introduce girls in grades 9-12 to computer science and July 7-11 for girls with some experience in computer science. The intermediate session can be attended after attending the first session.
