WHY: The U.S. Labor Department has estimated that there will be 1.4 million jobs openings for computer-related occupations this decade, and the median job for people with a Computer Science degree pays around $80,000 to $100,000. Of the STEM fields, Computer Science and Computer Engineering have the highest median earnings for recent college graduates without advanced degrees, and only around 12% are women. We want to change this!
HOW: We offer free camps and workshops to girls ages 10 to 18. Our female lead classes provide a fun and interactive learning experience aimed at getting girls excited about the world of Computer Science! We teach the basics of computer programming, web and game development, and so much more.
