CoderChicks will help improve female participation in the tech field. Currently, only 18% of Computer Science majors are held by women, and our goal is to change that. By teaching, encouraging, and motivating girls to pursue STEM from a young age, they will become more likely to gain interest in it. This project will have an e-newsletter and workshops in Central Florida to teach girls how to code.
We will hold workshops at local libraries, elementary schools, and community colleges. The workshops will teach different tech subjects, such as app development, game design, and Python programming. At the end of each workshop series, the girls will work in groups to create a program for social good to practice their leadership, collaboration, and real-world skills. The programs can vary from ways to protect our environment to preventing bullying and hunger.
