Girls Can Learn Coding & STEM Skills At Free Newtown Twp. Event


Girls in Bucks County are invited to take part in a free STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) Girlz/Girls Who Code event.

Bucks County Community College’s Newtown Township campus will host the all-day STEM Girlz/Girls Who Code workshop from 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. on Saturday, November 11.

Girls in grades 6 and 12 are invited to learn about Java programing, women in sciences and elements of HTML and CSS. The girls will have hands-on experiences with coding and have time for a brown-bag lunch.

The event is part of the national Girls Who Code movement, an effort to close the gender gap in the technology field.

Girls can decide whether to attend the morning, afternoon sessions or both. Those attending the entire day must bring a brown-bag lunch.

Registration is free and must be made in advance online.
