Go CODE Girl

Go CODE Girl provides an exciting opportunity for girls and non-binary individuals across Ontario to learn about the exciting world of coding and software development, and discover opportunities in computing and engineering fields.  This event is hosted by Guelph Women in Computer Science Club, Creative Encounters and Women in Engineering! Go CODE Girl is an annual event that runs in February on campus. 

Good news!  Go CODE Girl will run twice, once in the morning and afternoon.  This is in response to the high demand last year.

Why Attend This Event?

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 and inspire girls with the digital skills, confidence, and resources needed to pursue an education in technology, computing, and engineering. No previous programming experience is necessary. This program is a FREE and exciting opportunity for Grade 7 - 10 girls, including all youth who identify as girls or non-binary, to learn about the wonderful world of coding.
