Go CODE Girl at Western University

Go CODE Girl

What is Go CODE Girl?

Go CODE Girl provides an exciting opportunity for girls in grades 7-11 across Ontario to learn about the exciting world of coding and software development, and discover opportunities in computing and engineering fields.

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.
