May 14, 2014 / Share:


Leaders with TN Code Academy are hosting a series of summer workshops for girls between ages 12 and 18 who are interested in careers in computer science. 

“Educators and workforce development professionals are beginning to realize the need for these skillsets,” Sammy Lowdermilk, director of TN Code Academy, said in a prepared statement. “Our efforts in Tennessee are to get not only females, but all youth interested in the computer sciences.”

The summer program, which is sponsored by Tennessee Tech University and Launch Tennessee, will help girls across the state gain interest in computer programming, Web development, gaming and computer applications, officials said. 

100 Girls of Code will take place on 10 different dates across the state of Tennessee. The Nashville date is June 16th at the Nashville Entrepreneur Center.

 The 100 Girls of Code workshops will include an introduction into computer programming, a tutorial of the latest website development techniques and information about innovative gaming development strategies—all taught by two female programmers.

 Lunch will be provided at each workshop.

There are only 25 slots available at each location, so anyone interested is encouraged to sign up soon, officials said.
