Changing the Narrative with Code

March 11, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm

Free
3 hour virtual coding program for girls and boys (4-8th grade) with Code.org’s App Lab and Zoom.

Join Random Hacks of Kindness Junior and Emily Balboni , a Software Engineering Major at Quinnipiac University, for a coding session geared towards Changing the Narrative around Women in STEM.

Today, a persistent gender gap in digital access keeps women from unlocking technology’s full potential. Their underrepresentation in STEM education and careers remains a major barrier to their participation in tech design and governance. With Emily’s guidance we will explore this discrepancy and create code in an effort to change this narrative.

Emily first began coding when she was 12 years old using Scratch. Every day since her passion for programming has grown. When she is not in the classroom her focus is on supporting women in STEM. She is the President of the Girls Who Code club on my campus where they teach programming and empower young girls.

Participants will experience first hand how they can use technology to create positive change.
