We are excited to offer a code camp for female students in grades 8-12!
This event would not be possible without our sponsors, Best Buy, Converge Consulting, ImOn Communications, Kum & Go, McKee Voorhees & Sease, US Bank, Workiva, and Pear Deck. A big thank you to everyone involved!
Encouraging Girls to Experience Computer Science
While Computer Science is one of the fastest growing majors today, women make up only 18% of graduates. We can change this and have fun at the same time.
In February 2016, we held the first girls-only code camp in Iowa. The event exceeded our expectations – more than 50 middle and high school girls attended! We’ve since decided to support a variety of programs state-wide aimed at encouraging girls to experience and consider careers in computer science.
