Go Code Girl

A fun, supportive way to try out computer science!

Go Code Girl is an interactive, hands-on day of computer science & engineering - to expose girls to programming, computational thinking and digital skills through four fun sessions!

Each year, we partner with groups who have expertise and youth programs in different areas of computer science & engineering. Participants will rotate through four stations to complete puzzles, games, and other activities delivered by our partner organizations. Previous event partners have included the University of Manitoba Faculty of Science / STEAM, Canada Learning Code, and Microsoft’s DigiGirlz. Previous activities have included a choose-your-own adventure algorithm game, a "crack the code" interactive puzzle, block programming / game building, speed mentoring, and an opportunity to test out virtual reality devices and learn about its applications in health research.

When students register, they will have an opportunity to take part in online coding activities prior to the event. The more lessons a student completes, the more times their name will be entered to win a prize.

This event is great way for students to find out if computer science/engineering is an area they might like to pursue as a career one day. In addition, this event will inform the girls about other clubs, events, resources, etc. that exist if they would like to extend their learning beyond the day-long event.

Please stay tuned for details about the 2020 event.
