100 Girls of Code is a program of the Tennessee Code Academy, and it’s conducting workshops across Tennessee to raise awareness among girls ages 12 to 18 about careers in computer science.
The program is sponsored by Tennessee Tech University and Launch Tennessee, and the workshops will include an intro to computer programming, a tutorial of the latest website development techniques and a look at cutting-edge gaming development taught by two female programmers.
Lunch will be provided, and the workshops have room for 25. The Memphis workshop happens June 9.
