Codeverse Hosts Girls-Only Coding Workshop for Girl Scouts in Chicago Area! by 30Seconds Mom
Codeverse, the world's first fully interactive coding studio for kids ages 6-12, will host a girls-only coding workshop, exclusive to Girl Scouts of Greater Chicago and Northwest Indiana. The workshop will take place at Codeverse's flagship studio at 819 W. Eastman Street in Lincoln Park on Friday, September 8.
During the workshop, Girl Scouts will learn how to build an app or game in a fun, hands-on environment. Girl Scouts can interact with high-tech gadgets featured within the studio, including movable color-changing spotlights, 3D printers, robot arms, drones and more.
"We're delighted to partner with Girl Scouts of Greater Chicago and Northwest Indiana to bring the vital skill of coding to their members. It is imperative in our digital age to get young girls excited about STEM, and equip them with the technical skills needed for success," says Codeverse co-founder, Katy Lynch.
According to the U.S. Department of Commerce, women make up less than 25 percent of the STEM workforce in the U.S. Increasing girls' interest in science, mathematics, technology and engineering is an important effort of the Girl Scouts of Greater Chicago and Northwest Indiana, whose mission is to "build girls of courage, confidence and character, who make the world a better place."
Register for the Codeverse workshop today! Registration closes August 20, 2017.
