ROE #1 Reaching Gender Equity: Teaching Girls to Code and Change the World

Audience: All Educators and Administrators
Fee: $10.00
PD Clock Hours: 3
Presenter: Lisa Schwartz
Food:

  • Location: Adams County Health Department, Quincy, IL

    Computing skills are the most sought-after and highest-paying in the US job market, with demand growing 3X the national average. Yet fewer than 1 in 5 computer science graduates are women, and that number is declining.

    During this interactive session, we will be featuring our Girls Who Code Clubs, which are completely free afterschool programs for 6th-12th grade girls to join a sisterhood of supportive peers and role models and use computer science to change the world. Through fun and interactive curricula, Club girls not only learn about how to positively impact their community through code, but they also are taught to be brave and resilient — which has enormous impact on how they approach challenges and whether they stick with coding in the years to come.
