Project GCode, a Pittsburgh Supercomputing Center STEM pilot program,introduces girls in grades 6 through 12 to basic programming concepts to build awareness of 21st century careers in technology and cyberscience. With particular emphasis on girls of color, participants will learn website development, mobile application design and more, working closely with women instructors and mentors.
The goals of Project Gcode are to:
- expose girls to basic programming concepts
- help girls develop computational thinking skills through team building and interaction
- engage girls with science and technology leaders through hands-on workshops
- introduce girls to women of color who currently work in science and technology fields
