Our goal is to increase young women's confidence in their computing abilities, build valuable leadership skills, and associate fun with technology in an environment of empowerment. Snacks and transportation for field trips (dates TBD) are provided. Classrooms are wheelchair accessible.

Participant will:

  • Enjoy fun, educational field trips that expose young girls to technology
  • Develop an understanding of basic programming language Scratch to build confidence in computer science abilities
  • Engage with the fun and creative side computer science and see how technology plays a part in every career path
  • Learn more about the implications of the Digital Divide
  • Be empowered by strong female role models and a support system of peers
  • Enjoy a culminating celebration of the week on Friday—parents are invited!
