Great opportunities for middle school girls interested in learning more about coding and technology are coming to Oak Ridge.
The first two events are “You Can Code” held on January 21 and “Infographics” held on January 28 at Roane State Community College in Oak Ridge. For more information and to sign up, visit www.orcsgirls.org.
These TechShopz are powered by TechGirls (www.techgirlz.org), a 501(c) nonprofit dedicated to reducing and ultimately eliminating the gender gap in technology occupations.
Locally, the events are organized by Thomas Proffen, who has been active in the community teaching after-school classes at Jefferson Middle School, coaching the Atomic Eagle Lego League team, and working with Girls Inc. on a program in the spring. More TechShopz are planned for 2017. Keep in touch on www.orcsgirls.org.
