Go CODE Girl


Calling Girls in Grades 7 - 11!

Go CODE Girl provides an exciting opportunity for girls in grades ranging from 7 to 11 across Ontario to learn about the exciting world of coding and software development, and discover opportunities in computing and engineering fields.  Each location will have their own individual programs.

Why is this necessary?

Today, software forms the backbone of our interconnected and digital world. This includes everything from smart machines, to our communication systems to the cars we drive. Coding is the ability to read and write in a language that a computer can understand so that you can instruct a computer how to perform complex tasks. Learning to code can lead to increased digital confidence, a different way of thinking about problems and the ability to understand and use technology to help develop creative solutions in almost any discipline.

Go CODE Girl will educate, inspire and equip girls with the digital skills, confidence and resources needed to pursue education in technology, computing and engineering.  Careers in technology, computing and engineering are the fastest growing industry. For twitter, use #GoCODEGirl

Go CODE Girl 2016 ran successfully  in February.  Watch this space for Go CODE Girl 2017!

If you have a boy that is interested in similar programming, we highly encourage you to explore individual websites of our ONWiE members.  As well, please be aware that we have an inclusive view of the word “girl” and we welcome trans, gender queer and non-binary folks interested in our event.
