Program to Inspire Girls to Become Coders

TechGirlz is a program of Creating IT Futures, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit of CompTIA, which inspires middle school girls to explore the possibilities of technology to empower their future careers. To achieve its mission, TechGirlz has created engaging, interactive “TechShopz” led by industry professionals, community leaders, and students. The organization shares its free workshop curriculum with schools, community groups, and other organizations that aim to inspire girls around the world with technology. The programs range from beginner to advanced, with more than 60 tech topics from which to choose, including game design, mobile app design, podcasting, cybersecurity and internet safety, HTML and CSS, and virtual reality. The organization’s vision is to create a world where girls have a lifelong passion and confidence in their use of technology throughout their careers.

Plus: Today 26 percent of all coders are women. What would the internet look like without them? The Missing Code website shows us. View the Missing Code film and then tap the free computer science activities that are released biweekly for students, educators, and parents. The activities are of varying levels of difficulty; some are online, some offline. Each activity features a woman in tech who pioneered innovative technology.
