Computer Science to host 11th annual Girls Day
The Department of Computer Science will host its 11th annual Girls Day on Saturday, Nov. 10, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The event is a day of activities for girls in grades 6 through 8 from several local area schools with the purpose of stimulating an interest in technology.
Through a series of workshops presented by women who are professionals in the technological world, the students will have the opportunity to learn about robots, animation, video game and web page creation, creating visuals from photos and video editing. The goal of the program is to show these girls that there is no reason for computer science to be a male-dominated industry and that women have as much reason to be interested in technology as men organizers said.
