This month we are trying to help send five girls between the ages of 8 and 13 to a Kids Learning Code Summer Camp in July and August.
At our May event we will be discussing how to retain more women in STEM. It is a known fact that to achieve this we have to start at a young age AND make it fun and that’s where Kids Learning Code comes in!
These camps experiences are meant to take kids on a journey of discovery, empowerment, creativity and making! Each camp includes at least one field trip to a relevant technology company, a panel discussion with some of Toronto’s most energized professionals and experts, small and large hands on projects, demo presentations at the end of each day of camp, a demo day for parents and the community at the end of the week, and more!
In June 2013, Kids Learning Code began offering monthly workshops, camps and events for boys and girls. Like Girls Learning Code, these programs are beginner-friendly, hands-on and fun. Featuring a 3:1 ratio of kids to mentors, we ensure kids are guided by balanced numbers of male and female role models. At Kids Learning Code, we believe that if we want to encourage more diversity in the field of technology, we need to help boys and girls learn to work in technical environments together effectively. Thus, at Kids Learning Code events, 50% of tickets are reserved for boys and 50% for girls. If your child hasn’t yet experienced the fun of a Kids Learning Code workshop or camp, we encourage you to check out one of our upcoming events!
