Oak Ridge Computer Science Girls or ORCSGirls is on a mission to inspire girls in the community to explore the possibilities of technology and computer science, a press release said.
In its short existence since the beginning of the year, ORCSGirls has already run 16 coding and technology events and reached more than 200 middle school girls thanks to TechShopz in a Box by TechGirlz and wonderful volunteers, including many from Oak Ridge National Laboratory (read about them here) and the girls from the Oak Ridge Wildbots, the press release said.
“The final class on July 22 will let the girls get up close and personal with our cute Edison robots, ending with a joined mission of all robots working together,” the press release said.
The classes are free, lunch will be served, and a few spots are still open. Sign up today for one or all classes at http://www.orcsgirls.org/events.

More information will be added as it becomes available.
